Lallana could miss start of season

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana could miss the start of the new season after injuring his knee in training.

The 26-year-old, who moved to Anfield from Southampton earlier this month, sustained a knock to his lateral collateral ligament during a session at the Reds' Harvard University training base in Boston.

Although no time-frame has been placed on a return to fitness, such injuries can result in a spell of anywhere up to six weeks on the sidelines.

A quirk of the Barclays Premier League fixture list means Liverpool's first match is at home to Southampton on August 17, with Lallana now facing a fitness race to make the Anfield clash.

He has been assessed by Liverpool's medical staff and does not require surgery.

However, the news is clearly a setback for the England international, who will undergo further assessment by the club's medical team in the United States and on his return to Liverpool.

Lallana, a boyhood Everton fan, completed his £25million move to Anfield earlier this month, ending manager Brendan Rodgers' pursuit of a player he identified as a primary target for this summer.
