Liverpool could be set to welcome back Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane over the next couple of weeks, with both going well in their respective recoveries.

The two former Southampton stars are key players for the Reds and have arguably been badly missed in their absences this season.

Lallana hasn't made an appearance in the new season yet after picking up a thigh injury towards the end of the club's pre-season, and Mane has been out for the past four games with a hamstring strain.

The flying Senegal winger, according to AnfieldHQ, could be set to resume training this week such has been his positive progress, and England midfielder Lallana should return during the next international break.

Speaking before the weekend clash with Huddersfield, as quoted by This Is Anfield, Jurgen Klopp said of the pair: "[Recovery is] very good. But no option for tomorrow, no option for Wednesday and no option for West Ham. After the international break I think Adam and Sadio are back. It will be close.

"Adam was, this week, for the first time a part of the warm-up - his face showed how happy we was about this.

"They’re both with fitness coaches on the pitch, doing tactical things, it all looks good. But they need to be 100 percent. They aren’t at the moment, but they’re on a good way."

The Reds take on Maribor on matchday four of their Champions League campaign on Wednesday and will be quietly confident of three points following their 7-0 demolition of them in the reverse fixture two weeks ago.
