Brendan Rodgers: Injury update on Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says midfielder Adam Lallana will be in the squad to face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

The 26-year-old spent a full month on the sidelines after suffering an injury against Manchester United on March 22 but resumed training this week and is fit to face Tony Pulis' men.

Striker Daniel Sturridge is however ruled out with a hip injury.

"[Adam] Lallana has come back into training in the last few days," Rodgers said.

"We'll see how he is for the weekend, but none of the others will be fit, I would have thought.

"Jon Flanagan is now training with the team. Obviously he's a way off fitness, but we just need to monitor his rehabilitation and we'll see how he is for the coming games.

"We're unsure at this moment [over Daniel Sturridge's fitness level]. He's certainly not available for the weekend."

Meanwhile, the 42-year-old expressed his delight after vice-captain Jordan Henderson signed a new five-year deal with the club.

"We're obviously delighted, we have been talking for a little while now," Rodgers said on Thursday.

"It's great news for the football club and for Jordan that he's going to spend the best part of his career development here at Liverpool.

"Obviously he is a big part of the plan going forward. So I'm delighted for him, delighted for the club and he can continue with his development."
