Allen came on in the 65th minute for Emre Can in Liverpool's 3-2 victory over QPR on Sunday.

Allen had been sidelined for over a month with a knee injury but finally picked up some minutes off the bench. With Emre Can back fit, and getting the start in this game, it's unclear who is manager Brendan Rodgers' preferred defensive option to play alongside Steven Gerrard. Either way Allen or Can don't have much value in fantasy leagues due to their defensive midfield roles.

Manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Friday that Allen (knee) has looked "really well" in training, and he should be available for Sunday's match at QPR.

Allen has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury while on international duty for Wales back in September, but he appears to have finally made his way back to fitness. He's not a great fantasy option in most leagues due to his defensive traits, but he'll be a big boost to the Liverpool defensive effort.

Allen (knee) was not in manager Brendan Rodgers' 18 for Liverpool's 0-1 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Allen was to be assessed ahead of the match but apparently wasn't fit enough to be included. Liverpool's Champion League match Tuesday, should be a good barometer of the midfielder's health heading into the weekend.
