Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Joe Allen, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren are all unavailable for Liverpool’s clash against Augsburg on Thursday night.

The Reds host the Bundesliga side in the second leg of their Europa League last-32 clash at Anfield on Thursday night after a goalless draw in the first leg.

Liverpool have been handed a boost with Divock Origi back among the substitutes and Phillipe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge making a recent return to first-team action.

Speaking at his pre-match media conference on Thursday afternoon, Klopp confirmed that Allen, Lallana and Lovren were all set to miss the European tie.

Their leading goal-scoring Raul Bobadilla is unavailable for the clash against the Reds due to a thigh injury.

The Bundesliga side will also be without midfielder Markus Feulner, who started the first leg at the WWK Arena.
