Liverpool's injury struggles continue as midfielder Adam Lallana has reportedly failed to recover from a groin injury ahead of the Reds' crucial clash against Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday, 8 April.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the English midfielder, who suffered the injury against Manchester United before the international break will not travel to Ewood Park after missing training on Tuesday.
Brendan Rodgers was hoping that the former Southampton midfielder will be available for the clash, as the manager had revealed that he had returned to training ahead of Liverpool's game against Arsenal on 4 April, which the Reds lost 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
Lallana has had a frustrating debut season at Anfield, and has made just 24 appearances for the Reds this season owing to multiple injury absences throughout the current campaign.
The Northern Irishman will be disappointed to hear of Lallana's injury absence as they face a crucial replay against the Rovers, who are in good form in the Championship.
The England international is not the only player the manager is missing as he will also be without Steven Gerrard, Martin Skrtel and Emre Can, who are all suspended. The former two are serving their three game bans for infringements committed during the game against Manchester United, while the latter is serving a one-match ban for picking up two yellow cards during the clash against the north London club.
Meanwhile, Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has revealed that the club are over the disappointing loss to Arsenal and are completely focused on the FA Cup quarter-final replay against Blackburn on Wednesday.
The former Sunderland stopper believes that the Reds should take one game at a time and not look too far ahead. The Belgian international has made it clear that their intentions are to win the game, make it to Wembley and have a chance at winning the trophy.
"The message is we just have to take every game as it comes and not look too far ahead of ourselves," Mignolet told Liverpool's official site.
"We've got the Blackburn game now and that's what we have to focus on, try to make sure we win there and get through to the next round. What comes after that will come after that, so there's no point looking too far in front."
"It's another experience to win [silverware] and for me personally, I want to go to Wembley and win the cup. As a footballer, you want to win trophies and medals - but first comes first we have to get past Blackburn," the Belgian goalkeeper added.
