Eriksson on Lallana: It doesn't matter what Liverpool boss Klopp thinks

HD Mahmoud Dahoud

Liverpool's England midfielder Adam Lallana could be out for up to a month after suffering a thigh injury on global duty, British media reported yesterday.

Lallana has been ruled out for a month after suffering a thigh problem while appearing for his country in their World Cup qualifying win over Lithuania on Sunday.

His absence for the 228th Merseyside derby at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime will be a significant loss as Lallana performs a key role in manager Jurgen Klopp's pressing game.

Lallana's first game on the sidelines will be Saturday's Merseyside derby at home to Everton.

1-seeds Kansas, Gonzaga top Thursday's NCAA Sweet 16 slate
Xavier chipped away at Arizona's biggest lead of the game (10) and tied it up with just under 2 minutes to play. Gonzaga tops the West bracket and faces No. 4 seed West Virginia in games set for San Jose, California.

The news of Lallana's injury during worldwide duty will undoubtedly infuriate Liverpool supporters, as the injury came through no fault of their own. His vision and pass set up Jamie Vardy's strike for the Three Lions at the weekend.

And to make matters worse, this is not the first time the 28-year-old has been injured on worldwide duty this season, having been ruled out for one month after England's 2-2 draw against Spain last November. The playmaker could miss five vital matches in their push for a top-four place.

Liverpool's only consolation with Lallana is that they are able to claim back his wages through the Federation Internationale de Football Association club protection programme due to it occurring on global duty.

The club have not put a timescale on Lallana's recovery time but there is speculation he could be out for up to a month.
