Joe Allen will be "out for a while" according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, as the midfielder has to recover from a hamstring injury picked up last weekend.
Allen, along with Dejan Lovren, were removed early during the eventual draw with Sunderland in Week 25. The prognosis for both looked as though the injuries were minor and both would be available in a week's time. However, Lovren has been ruled out for at least the weekend clash with Aston Villa while it sounds as though Allen will be sidelined for longer. The Reds will likely line up with Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and James Milner playing between the back four and the attacking three. Feb 12 - 6:46 AM

Joe Allen was removed early in Liverpool's draw with Sunderland on Saturday due to fatigue according to Jurgen Klopp in his press conference ahead of the Reds FA Cup replay with West Ham United.

Jordan Ibe came on at the end of the first half to replace Allen and the Reds would eventually cough up a two goal lead in the final quarter hour of play. The status of Allen seems relatively clear - he will almost certainly be rested for the FA Cup tie, with Lucas as a likely replacement, but should be fine for Week 26 against Aston Villa. Allen isn't much of a fantasy prospect, but for the few managers out there that have him on their roster, check back in later in the week for confirmation of his availability.

Joe Allen latched on to a Christian Benteke header and slotted a shot past Petr Cech from the top of the box that secured the Reds a point against league leaders Arsenal.

In the first half it was the Roberto Firmino show as the Brazilian scored two goals in the first 20 minutes as well as a hard shot that went just over Petr Cech's crossbar. Arsenal replied quickly to both Firmino goals and went ahead in the second half on Olivier Giroud's second of the day. That left it to Joe Allen who equalized in the dying minutes of the match as the culmination of a barrage of Liverpool attacks.

Joe Allen looks set to miss the trip to the Britannia this weekend after the Wales international limped out of last Sundays’ friendly win over Swindon Town with barely 12 minutes on the clock.

Allen was hoping to stake a claim for a place in the match-day squad against Stoke but the midfielder is now expected to be sidelined after tweaking his hamstring – a scan will confirm the extent of the problem. Any decision regarding the involvement of Christian Benteke this weekend is likely to be left until the last moment but his debut goal - a stunning strike - and overall performance pleased Rodgers who hinted he could get the nod despite not being 100% match fit. However the same cannot be said of summer signing Firmino who is still lacking sharpness according to BR - following his late return from the Copa America - which means the Brazilian can only hope for a place on the bench at very best.

Steven Gerrard's inexplicable red card and resulting ban should give Joe Allen a few more starts, with Lucas a potential option as well now that he is fit.

When Brendan Rodgers has no injuries or suspensions to deal with, he would have a weekly selection dilemma with four seasoned PL players battling it out for two positions in central midfield. However, things have worked out where he rarely has all four available. One spot is certainly locked up now and perhaps for seasons to come by Jordan Henderson. With Gerrard suspended for the next three and leaving Anfield at season's end, the other spot is down to Allen and Lucas with the former having the slight edge at the moment. Neither are appealing in fantasy however.

Liverpool have been handed a triple injury boost ahead of the Swansea City game as Joe Allen [hip], Steven Gerrard [hamstring] and Martin Skrtel [neck] are all expected to return in GW29.

Allen was a late withdrawal last weekend following a training ground injury but the club have confirmed his hip injury is only minor and the Welsh international will be available to face his former employers. Gerrard however has spent over a month out and is not expected to walk back into the team given the form of Vice-captain Jordan Henderson who has grown in statue this term. Martin Skrtel was also given the all-clear after an awkward landing against Blackburn in the cup left the defender slightly concussed. Mamadou Sakho played 45 minutes for the under-21 side on Monday while Jose Enrique and Lucas Leiva are stepping up their rehabilitation from respective knee and groin injuries.

Joe Allen faces a late-fitness test before Liverpool's week 19 match.

Allen is dealing with a knee issue and will be a late fitness test on Monday. He isn't very likely to be passed fit and should be avoided until ruled healthy. He has only averaged about four points per match this year and shouldn't be considered in the Yahoo! Fantasy game.

A knee injury sustained over the international break did not heal in time for Joe Allen to make the squad in Week 4, and Brendan Rodgers since has announced that the midfielder will remain out for a few weeks more.

With Allen out for a stretch, Rodgers will likely ask for Jordan Henderson to focus more on his defensive responsibilities, assisting Steven Gerrard in central midfield, and should allow for Phillipe Coutinho to get an extended run in the starting XI until Allen returns. This makes Henderson as less attractive option in fantasy and Coutinho a potentially sneaky, rewarding investment.

Joe Allen recently returned from injury and started Liverpool's last game against Southampton in place of Raheem Sterling.

Allen came off the bench in Liverpool's game against Swansea the week before and his play was good enough to earn him a start. The move may have been tactical, in an attempt to contain Southampton's midfield, so it's not necessarily certain that he'll keep starting. Avoid both Allen and Sterling until the situation settles.

Joe Allen, who has been so important to Liverpool in Steven Gerrard's absence, will miss some time with an abductor strain he picked up against Chelsea.

Steven Gerrard is returning from injury, so Allen's absence won't be felt too strongly. Still, it leaves Liverpool's midfield dangerously thing - especially since Jordan Henderson barely escaped his own injury after a bad tackle by Samuel Eto'o.

Midfielder Joe Allen could be available to face Newcastle United this weekend after coming back from a variety of injuries.

Allen return is being touted by the club as the cliched "like a new signing". He will give Liverpool some much needed depth in central midfield behind Lucas Leiva and Steven Gerrard.

Joe Allen tweaked his hamstring, Aly Cissokho took a knock to his ankle, and worst of all for Liverpool, Kolo Toure "overstretched his groin" according to Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool beat Notts County 4-2 in extra time yesterday, but losing Allen, Cissokho, and especially Toure will be a blow ahead of their big match against Manchester United this weekend.
