Lallana picked up a knee injury during last weekend's win over Reading and the club are sweating over the full extent of the problem.

Southampton do not have a game until December 22 when Sunderland visit St Mary's, giving Lallana extra time to recover from the injury, and Adkins is hoping his skipper will be able to make a speedy recovery.

"We will assess the injury in the next few days but the good news is that we do not have a match now until December 22 so he has extra time to recover," said Adkins.

"Had there been a game this weekend, who knows? Adam's knee is immobilised and we will see how he gets on."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
