Liverpool's Lallana set to return for trip to Bournemouth

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is expected to return to the side for the trip to Bournemouth after recovering from a groin problem which has kept him out for three weeks.

Manager Jurgen Klopp will restore his first-choice line-up, having made eight changes for the midweek EFL Cup win over Leeds.

Roberto Firmino has returned to training after a calf problem against Sunderland last week but Daniel Sturridge will not be involved because of a similar injury which has sidelined him for the last two games.

Provisional squad: Karius, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Mane, Origi, Firmino, Mignolet, Klavan, Moreno, Alexander-Arnold, Can, Grujic, Lucas, Ejaria, Woodburn.
