Klopp 'not happy' over Lallana's England injury

Klopp 'not happy' over Lallana's England injury

Liverpool will be without attacking midfielder Adam Lallana for Saturday's Merseyside derby against Everton.

Footage emerged on Tuesday of Lallana rubbing his left thigh in discomfort after the first half of the 2-0 win against Lithuania on Sunday, but he saw out the full 90 minutes.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed his frustration with the recent injury sustained by Adam Lallana while away on worldwide duty, although does not appear to lay the blame for such a crucial temporary loss at the door of England counterpart Gareth Southgate.

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.

That injury forced him to miss three matches but this issue could be much longer and it leaves Klopp with mounting concerns ahead of the showdown with their neighbours.

Liverpool are fourth in the English Premier League table having 56 points from 29 games.

The midfielder suffered a calf injury playing for England against Spain in November which ruled him out for several weeks.

Another global break, and another injury for Liverpool.

"I don't blame anybody for this, especially not Gareth Southgate", he added.

Lallana's worth has also become evident on the worldwide stage as he scored on three successive England appearances earlier in the campaign.

The Reds were scattered far and wide over the last few days, but they are now slowly coming back together as they prepare for a huge Premier League clash with Everton on Saturday.

The England attacking midfielder picked up a hip problem during the worldwide break to leave Jurgen Klopp without one of his key players for the visit of Everton.

The Exploding Heads preview the Merseyside Derby, but Ian Fiveankles debates whether this is actually a derby. Making that tactical switch would, of course, hand Divock Origi a start as one of Liverpool's three forwards.
