It has been reported that Adam Lallana is ready to play through the pain barrier for Liverpool this weekend against Manchester United.
The England international didn’t figure in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Basle after he broke two ribs during the 3-1 win at Leicester seven days earlier.
The 26 year old had played against Sunderland last Saturday with the aid of a pain-killing injection and will do the same against Manchester United, says the Daily Mail.
Mario Balotelli, meanwhile, has an outside chance of being involved at Old Trafford after he returned to training at Melwood on Thursday.
Balotelli has not played for Liverpool since November 8 because of a groin problem sustained on international duty.
