​Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana appeared to miss training on Tuesday ahead of the Reds' ​Premier League clash with Watford on Saturday.

The England international has struggled with injury this season and faces a tough task to get back into Jurgen Klopp's starting XI when fully fit, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Emre Can and James Milner all playing in central midfield in recent weeks.

​​As evident in photos on Liverpool's Twitter account and reported by ​the Echo, Lallana did not participate in training with the rest of his teammates.

Lallana missed the first four months of the season with a calf injury he suffered in August and spent part of his recovery in Dubai, eventually returning in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea in November.

​Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back on Saturday against ​Watford after losing at Old Trafford last weekend, with a Marcus Rashford double trumping Eric Bailly's own goal.


While they still look good for a top four finish, Liverpool are now only four points above fifth-placed ​Chelsea, albeit with a higher goal difference than the Blues.

Klopp's side dropped a place on Sunday after ​Tottenham beat ​Bournemouth but face their last match versus a top four rival when they play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in April.
