Adam Lallana is confident he can still play a part for Liverpool and England as he closes on a return to action.

After starring for England in their disappointing Euro 2016 campaign, the 30-year-old went on to make 31 Premier League appearances in the 2016-17 season, scoring eight goals in the process.

However, he has suffered numerous injury setbacks over the past 18 months and was only seen on 12 occasions last term.

He has become a forgotten man at Anfield, with the current side enjoying an excellent start to proceedings this time around to sit third in the standings but level on points with both Manchester City and Chelsea.

He is yet to start a Premier League game for the Reds this season and was forced to withdraw from the England squad last month after sustaining a groin problem during training.

However, the former Southampton man is refusing to throw in the towel and feels he has plenty to offer.

“I know I can make a significant contribution over the course of a long season and that’s where my focus will remain – with so much to play for,” he told

“Doing my best and giving everything for my team-mates, management and supporters of club and country is all that matters.”

It remains to be seen if the talented midfielder makes the squad when Jurgen Klopp’s men return to action against Huddersfield on October 20, with the Merseysiders on offer at 1.22 and the Terriers priced at 13.00 to pull off an unlikely victory in front of their own fans.
