Adam Lallana took another important step in his rehabilitation on Thursday morning by running outside at Melwood for the first time since sustaining a thigh injury.

The Liverpool midfielder was out jogging at the training ground as he continues to recover from the issue he picked up during the Audi Cup final at the beginning of August.

Lallana was initially ruled out for ‘a couple of months’ but remains on track, recently confirming to that he is ‘getting on well’.
