Liverpool trained without manager Jurgen Klopp on Wednesday as they stepped up their preparations for Saturday's Premier League clash with Southampton.

Klopp missed the session after being taken to hospital with an illness, but he is expected to be well enough to take his place in the dugout at Anfield this weekend.

Adam Lallana is also set to be involved against the Saints after he joined full training for the first time since August.

Lallana has not featured for the Reds all season due to a hamstring injury but the 29-year-old is in line to return and face his former club.

He spent the last fortnight completing a bespoke fitness plan and has now finally joined the rest of his team-mates in training, including Jordan Henderson.

Captain Henderson missed Liverpool 4-1 win at West Ham and subsequently England's 0-0 draws against Germany and Brazil with a thigh complaint, but he is back in contention.

Sadio Mane was also involved although he did not take part in all of the exercises, casting doubt over his availability for Saturday's game.

Mane aggravated a recurring hamstring problem on international duty with Senegal and Liverpool are likely to take a cautious approach considering his injury history.

In Klopp's absence, assistant manager Zeljko Buvac led the session.
