LONDON (AFP) - New signing Adam Lallana could miss the start of the season for Liverpool after sustaining a knee injury in training in the United States, the club said on Saturday

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

There was no word on how long he would be sidelined for, but such injuries can result in a spell of anywhere up to six weeks out of action.

By chance, Liverpool's season-opener is at home to Southampton on Aug 17, with Lallana now facing a fitness race to make the Anfield clash.
