​Klopp: Can and Lallana could return for Liverpool

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is cautiously optimistic injured duo Emre Can and Adam Lallana could return before the end of the season.

"When I first heard about it I thought it would be difficult for him to play again but the season that we were talking about was the middle of May, now we have the chance it is a little bit longer," said Klopp.

"Emre has developed well since then. It is always a guess with these kind of injuries; it is not 100 per cent.

"He is in good hands. He is not overly happy about the situation but he is quite positive it will go quicker than possible. I know I said his season is probably over but that is not that true anymore."

Klopp added: "It is similar [with Lallana]. It will be close for him to come back. There is no rush, it makes no sense.

"I don't want to close the door for the season, how can I? Joel Matip is for sure out [for the season] but with the other two there is a little bit of hope."
