By Dominic Toner
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana could return from injury against Bournemouth, according to a report.
Sky Sports claim that the 28-year-old has now returned to full training and “has a chance” of making his comeback at the weekend.
The Reds travel to Bournemouth for a Premier League encounter and will be extremely boosted by the return of Lallana.
The Englishman has missed the club’s last three games after suffering a groin injury on international duty earlier this month.
Liverpool are currently dealing with several injury blows ahead of a busy December period, including Philippe Coutinho’s absence until the new year.

Jurgen Klopp’s side remain second-placed in the Premier League and just a point behind leaders Chelsea, which shows the great strength in the squad.
The Merseyside club were unbeaten in the three games that Lallana missed, but will be extremely pleased to welcome back the creative midfielder.
Lallana has played a major role in Liverpool’s excellent start to the season and is a regular starter when he is available.
The central midfielder has scored three goals and supplied five assists in just 12 games this season, becoming one of the club’s greatest goal threats.
He has forged a commanding partnership alongside Jordan Henderson and Emre Can in the midfield, with Georginio Wijnaldum another player who can fit into the three-man system.
Lallana has been a consistent Liverpool performer since his move to Anfield in 2014 from Southampton and is showing this season why the club paid £25million for him.
