Adam Lallana will be hoping to make his return from injury in Liverpool’s final Premier League game of the season against Brighton.
The midfielder sustained a hamstring issue after coming on as a substitute against Crystal Palace last month and has not featured since for the Reds.
The England international travelled to South Africa recently to continue his ongoing rehabilitation – and Jürgen Klopp is hopeful that he could play some minutes before the end of the campaign.
“Adam is here doing his fitness work. He’s not injured anymore but he’s not fit yet. We hope still that one or two games might be possible for him. We will see,” said the boss.
“There is no chance for the weekend, no chance for Wednesday and then it could be difficult [for Chelsea]. Maybe possible for Brighton for Adam. We have to see.”
Klopp said: “Emre is a little bit further away. His rehab is improving a lot. It is much better, but it is quite close to the end of the season.
“I haven’t closed any doors on both of them. There is still a possibility.”
Liverpool see their current midfield options running thin, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ruled out for the rest of the season after sustaining knee ligament damage during midweek’s 5-2 Champions League semi-final win over Roma.
