Liverpool has been dealt a massive blow just a week before the season with an injury to Adam Lallana.
Manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the attacking midfielder will miss the next few months after suffering a thigh injury on Wednesday against Atletico Madrid in the Audi Cup. The injury will likely create some breathing room for Georginio Wijnaldum or Jordan Henderson. Said Klopp: "Unfortunately, the damage is such that it will likely mean Adam is out for a couple of months not weeks, so I think we can pretty much rule him out of August and September. Beyond that we will monitor and wait and see. He is a boy with a world-class attitude to everything professionally and he has always come back in good time from injury setbacks since I have been here, so we will see." Aug 4 - 10:11 PM

Liverpool was dealt a heavy blow on Tuesday with the news that midfielder Adam Lallana will miss around four weeks.

The star midfielder sustained a thigh injury in the late stages of England's World Cup qualifier against Lithuania on Sunday, and the injury has become progressively worse over the last few days. Now, Lallana is set to miss up to a month and has already been ruled out of the club's next three fixtures over the course of the next 10 days, including the Merseyside derby against Everton this weekend. The former Southampton standout is one of Liverpool's top producers with seven goals and seven assists in the Premier League this season. However, Jordan Henderson could slide right back into the starting lineup if deemed fit following a foot injury.

The brief speculation over Adam Lallana's future at Liverpool is over after the club officially announced he has signed a new contract.

The former Southampton midfielder has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham in recent months following a stellar run of form that has seen him record seven goals and seven assists this season. But the 28-year-old has now signed a three-year contract reportedly worth £150,000-a-week to make him one of the highest-paid players at the club. Said Lallana: "Signing for a club like Liverpool is obviously a big thing – but to re-sign shows you’ve obviously contributed enough that the people who make the decisions want you to stay longer. This is a really good place to be at the moment and, for a player who wants to be part of something special, I can’t think of a better club to commit your future to."

Adam Lallana heads into Liverpool's match against Spurs late Saturday as a doubt, with Jurgen Klopp optimistic that the midfielder can overcome his Achilles injury.

Lallana missed a couple days of training in this week's buildup to the match against Tottenham, but Jurgen Klopp hoped to have the England international back in training on Friday, along with Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan, who also missed training with knee and illness issues respectively. It sounds as though Lovren and Lallana have a better than 50/50 chance of making the XI on Saturday, assuming there were no setbacks on the training ground Friday.

Liverpool have not had a good week when it comes to cup play, as they are knocked out at home in the 1-2 FA Cup loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers a few days after ending their EFL Cup run.

Jurgen Klopp made nine changes from the side that lost Wednesday in the second leg of the EFL semifinal, with Loris Karius and Roberto Firmino retaining their positions. The fringe players could not get the job done as Wolves shocked the Anfield crowd, taking a 0-2 lead into halftime. Divock Origi was finally able to pull one back late on, but there was not enough time to complete a comeback. Influential figures such as Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana were not risked as they recover from their respective minor injuries but one has to speculate whether Klopp would have included them if he knew the side he would go on to name would struggle so much. Even Sadio Mane's week has been forgettable, as his missed penalty led directly to Senegal getting knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Liverpool is on the back end of a hectic fixture list, but the club might have to go without Adam Lallana for the FA Cup on Saturday.

While the club faces Wolverhampton Wanderers in the fourth round of the Cup, manager Jurgen Klopp said he won't throw out a bunch of new faces. But he might be forced to rest Lallana, who sustained a cut that required stitches this week. "But we’ll have enough and a very good team for tomorrow. We will not make 10 changes or something. A few changes we have to make. A real injury problem… Adam Lallana got a cut, maybe you saw it. I’m not sure we should now try, if the stitches are really good enough or whatever. But not more."

Adam Lallana continued his scorching hot form as he equalized Jon Walters' first half tally and then it was off to the races as Liverpool scored three more unanswered for a 4-1 win.

The Christmas season looked to be piling progressively more misery on Jurgen Klopp's men. After Roberto Firmino was pulled over for drunk driving on Christmas Eve the Reds looked decidedly off the pace as their match with the Potters started. Jon Walters scored the opener and Joe Allen nearly made it 2-0 but for a strong save from Simon Mignolet. Lallana converted a deflected Sadio Mane pass for Liverpool's equalizer and the flood gates opened. Firmino put the Reds into the lead a couple of minutes later and Giannelli Imbula (OG) and Daniel Sturridge score in the second half for the final 4-1 tally.

Adam Lallana reinforced Liverpool's title credentials as the overcame Middlesbrough 3-0 at the Riverside.

The Reds bounced back from last weekend's disappointing draw with West Ham with an emphatic win. Lallana struck first, asserting their dominance over the tie with some slick play. The goal came off the back of a Clyne cross to the back post which Lallana headed home. Origi scored the second with his fifth in five games, finishing off a flowing move with the final ball coming from none other than Adam Lallana again. The third again came from good play which Klopp will be proud of. Origi turned provider to tee up Lallana for his brace from 6 yards out and he side footed home.

Jurgen Klopp has reported that Adam Lallana is back in training as of Thursday and "looked good", offering some optimism on the midfielder returning this weekend.

It is a bit of a mess in the Reds injury department for their attacking players, with some good news, and some bad. The best news of the lot is the possible return of Lallana for the weekend's match against Bournemouth, but Jurgen Klopp has several ways he can approach a strong XI, even without Lallana's inclusion. Roberto Firmino is expected to play, and may form a front three with Sadio Mane and Divock Origi, though Lallana could find a wide role in that trident. Should he revert back to the middle of the park, he will need to oust one of Jordan Henderson, Emre Can or Georginio Wijnaldum. Fantasy managers will hope for the best but may want to consider an alternative option as a Sunday kickoff gives even managers in formats that allow for lineup changes during the gameweek very limited replacement options.

Jurgen Klopp has reported that Adam Lallana will miss additional two or three more games as the impact midfielder recovers from a groin injury.

Tough news for Lallana owners in fantasy as there was hope the England international had a chance of returning this weekend. In reality, despite coming off a rare goalless performance, the Reds are fortunate to have a soft schedule for the next two weeks, as they host Sunderland this weekend and travel to Bournemouth the following week. A possible third game out would be for the EFL Cup so that sets up Lallana for a PL return when the Reds host West Ham in Week 14.

Adam Lallana could miss "two or three games" according to Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp.

The in-form midfielder failed to make the trip to his former stomping ground after picking up a groin injury while representing England. Klopp had refused to rule Lallana out of the game at St Mary’s during Thursdays press-conference as the club were waiting on the results of his scan: "We don't know, it will be close. We have to wait, hopefully the [groin] injury is not too serious." But the 28-year-old was a notable absentee when the squad arrived at Southampton airport late on Friday evening. However, following the goalless draw, Klopp did offer an update: "Adam Lallana is not in because he picked up an injury," he said. "It was serious enough to be not involved today and possibly the next two or three games. We don't know exactly in the moment." Gini Wijnaldum is likely to deputise in the Premier League game against Sunderland and the EFL Cup match at home to Leeds United.

Adam Lallana will not recover from his injured groin while playing against Spain in time to face his former club Southampton in Week 12.

Lallana is set to have a scan on his injured groin some time today, and we should know very soon exactly how much time he is expected to miss, but fantasy managers can go ahead and plan around not having him available against the Saints. In reality, Liverpool's attack shouldn't be too damaged. Georginio Wijnaldum will likely regain a starting role, which he has not had since Week 7, playing in a midfield trio with Jordan Henderson and Emre Can.

Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of their in-form attacking midfielder Adam Lallana after he limped off against Spain on Tuesday evening.

The 28-year-old has been one of Jürgen Klopp’s standout performers so far this term – three goals and five assists – but his availability in game week 12 hangs in the balance after Lallana was replaced on 27 minutes due to an apparent muscular injury. Should Lallana miss out, then Klopp will consider the likes of Daniel Sturridge or Divock Origi to help fill the void. Meanwhile, Liverpool will reportedly fork out around £30k to fly Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho back on a private jet following their involvement for Brazil in Lima, Peru. The flight should land in the UK on Wednesday evening allowing the pair to undertake additional training sessions ahead of the trip to Southampton.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed an injury to midfielder Adam Lallana will keep him from England national team duty.

Lallana was enjoying a nice run of form with three goals and three assists in three Premier League matches before being subbed off in the 20th minute against Swansea with a groin injury. Nathaniel Clyne will also join him in missing England's World Cup qualifiers with a knee injury while Dejan Lovren looks set to miss out for Croatia as well due to an injured groin. Said Klopp: "Hopefully 15 or 16 days should be enough to bring them back on the pitch. Things like this happen - there was no sign of it in the week. The pitch was a little bit wet, of course, so things like this can happen. It's not too nice but nothing else."

Adam Lallana had to leave the match against Swansea City after only 20 minutes due to a groin injury.

Lallana has been in fantastic form, having as much to do with the success of the Reds high-flying attack as anyone, so to see him make his way down the tunnel after 20 minutes is a major blow to the club. He went to ground once before, picked himself to continue on, but collapsed again a few minutes later. Hopefully, that attempt to play on hasn't further damaged the injury. It would seem he will certainly miss out of international duty for England over the break but we will need to wait for an assessment on his groin before determining if how much, if any, more time he may be out.
