Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana ruled out for two months with thigh injury

Liverpool will face a play-off match to make the group stages of the Champions League

He stands to miss Liverpool's two-legged Champions League play-off against Hoffenheim as well as league games against Watford, Crystal Palace, Arsenal, Manchester City, Burnley and Leicester City.

Their coach Julian Nagelsmann, who turned 30 last month, is one of the most highly-rated young trainers in the game. If there's a choice, we always seem to take the German team.

The first legs will be played on Aug 15 and 16, with the return fixtures on Aug 22 and 23.

"It's not an easy game". We had two draws and lost on penalties to Atletico Madrid. I'm completely fine with it, happy to know and now we can start preparing.

A tribunal is set to decide the training compensation Antonio Conte's side will receive for Solanke, but whatever the fee, it will not mask the fact they have surrendered a truly exciting talent to a rival.

Hoffenheim, whose Rhein Neckar Arena is in Sinsheim in south-west Germany, are in the Champions League for the first time in their history after finishing fourth in the Bundesliga last season.

McMaster Opposes Trump's Every Move on Foreign Policy
He warned that globalists and Islamists are seeking to destroy America and said it "constituted a national security priority". The undated and unclassified letter from McMaster was sent in the mail to Rice's home during the last week of April.

Lallana's issue is now confirmed however, with Klopp saying on Friday: "This is certainly not news we would have wanted".

Palace won the third-place playoff earlier on Saturday, seeing off West Brom 2-0 in a testy affair that saw a heated exchange between players as they entered the tunnel at halftime. "He will be a huge asset", the 63-year-old concluded.

Klopp was in Munich for the Audi Cup pre-season tournament.

The tie pitches Roberto Firmino against his former club as the Brazilian striker spent four seasons at Hoffenheim before joining Liverpool in 2015.

Nagelsmann says his players will not be intimidated, but admits the play-off tie will help boost the Bundesliga club's profile overseas.
