Klopp delivers latest Liverpool injury update ahead of Augsburg clash

Jurgen Klopp confirms Lucas Leiva will return to Liverpool squad but Adam Lallana will miss Augsburg clash

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Adam Lallana will miss Liverpool’s Europa League clash against Augsburg on Thursday night.

The England midfielder is currently sidelined with a calf injury and the former Southampton captain won’t recover in time for Thursday’s last-32 clash.

However, the Liverpool manager confirmed that Lucas will be available to feature in the first leg against the Bundesliga side after recovering from a minor hamstring issue.

“Lucas is back fit but not Adam – he has no chance for Thursday’s game,” Klopp is quoted as saying by Liverpool’s website.

Liverpool were impressive 6-0 winners against Aston Villa at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool are unbeaten in Europe this season (W2 D4), that run including all four of their continental games under Klopp (W2 D2).

While at Leverkusen, Emre Can scored two of his four Bundesliga goals against Augsburg – in a 2-1 home win in October 2013 and in a 3-1 away victory in March 2014.

The sides are meeting for the first time and this is Augsburg’s maiden date with English opponents.
