Liverpool Midfielder Adam Lallana Set To Miss Six Weeks With A Knee Injury, Says Report

Liverpool supporters will have to wait a little longer for the debut of £23million signing Adam Lallana.

The midfielder has been ruled out for up to six weeks, according to a report, after suffering an injury to his knee during training.

Lallana sustained a knock to his lateral collateral ligament during Liverpool’s training session at Harvard University. The 26-year-old England international was assessed by Liverpool’s medical staff but it is believed that his injury will not require surgery.

He will miss the Premier League club’s opening fixtures against his former side Southampton, Manchester City and Tottenham. The midfielder will also have to sit out England’s Euro 2016 qualifier versus Switzerland.

The former Southampton player was set to make his debut against Olympiacos on Sunday in the Liverpool’s International Champions Cup match at Soldier Field in Chicago.

The hope around Anfield is that Lallana will be fit in time for the start of Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League campaign.

  1. What is it with Liverpool’s over-20 million pound signings that they get injured before their first match and end up being a disappointment, Carroll and Aquilani come to mind. Let’s hope when Lallana recovers he doesn’t end up like the other two.

  2. Got a feeling it will be a case of second season syndrome for Liverpool. Big mistake not replacing Suarez with a striker of similar quality. They should snap up Cavani before somebody else does. Remy, Lambert and Sturridge will not replace Suarez output.

      1. Sturridge is not presently as good as Cavani. Cavani has proved himself in different leagues and internationally.
