Adam Lallana could miss up to six Liverpool games after being ruled out for up to a month with a thigh problem.
The 27-year-old midfielder completed England’s 2-0 victory over Lithuania but is understood to have tweaked a thigh muscle towards the end of the Wembley encounter on Sunday.
It means of course he will initially miss this Saturday’s Merseyside derby against Everton but the damage will be felt throughout a busy April.
After Everton (April 1), Liverpool will host Bournemouth at Anfield the following Wednesday before the always tricky journey to Stoke for a rare 3pm kick-off on Grand National day (April 8).
