Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that Adam Lallana will be able to return to action for Liverpool FC around the start of October.

The England midfielder has been out of action due to a groin strain which forced him to withdraw from international duty during the recent break.

The injury is not thought to be too serious and although he sat out Liverpool FC’s trip to Tottenham on Saturday, Klopp is hopeful that Lallana is not too far away from being able to make a comeback for the Reds.

Speaking to Liverpool FC’s website, Klopp said: “Adam is on a good way. It’s obviously not too serious but he is not available for the weekend and maybe not for the next week [and] then I hope he can be back.”

Lallana has found his playing time to be limited this season, with the 30-year-old having only made one substitute’s appearance from the bench in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace back in August.

Meanwhile, the Reds are now preparing to kick off their Champions League group stage campaign when they take on Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Liverpool FC are aiming to establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after they finished fourth in the table under Klopp last term.

The Reds are still looking to try and win their first major trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in 2015.
