Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reassured Adam Lallana he still has a key part to play for the remainder of the season. The England midfielder has not started a match since the FA Cup win over Everton in early January after two setbacks from a thigh problem saw him miss the first four months of the campaign. Lallana has managed just 186 minutes of Premier League action since making his comeback from that preseason injury in November, but against Porto he could be in line for his first European appearance since the 2016 Europa League final defeat to Sevilla. "Adam, absolutely was an integral part of the team and with the competition we have for Adam it is still usually not a problem for him, because he is important to us,'' said Klopp.
