The Wales international had been enjoying a stretch of strong performances for Liverpool before his injury, coming up with a big moment from the bench to equalise against Arsenal in the Premier League before scoring the decisive penalty in the shootout against Stoke City in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg.

This latest injury was a rough blow for the 25-year-old, who has struggled with fitness problems over the last two years, per Transfermarkt.com.

However, Liverpool are still in the race for a Europa League ticket, and Allen's versatility in midfield will be a useful option to Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
