Adam Lallana appeared in good spirits as he trained with the rest of the Liverpool squad ahead of Saturday’s clash with Aston Villa.

The England international is yet to feature for the Reds following his summer move from Southampton due to injury but has been passed fit for the visit of Paul Lambert’s side.

The 26-year-old was all smiles as he joined fellow new recruits Lazar Markovic and Alberto Moreno for Thursday’s training session at Melwood.

Speaking at his pre-match news briefing on Thursday, manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed that Lallana is available for selection – but Daniel Sturridge is out for up to three weeks with a thigh strain.

“Adam Lallana has been back in the squad for the last couple of weeks, so he’s fine,” said Rodgers.

“It could be up to three weeks [for Sturridge], which is obviously disappointing.”

Here are some of the best pictures from Thursday’s training session.
