​Liverpool midfielder Milner absent from training

Liverpool midfielder James Milner missed his side's training session as they prepare for their next game.

The veteran was not involved at Melwood, but Naby Keita did train with the rest of the first team.

Milner missed his side's 3-2 win over West Ham United this week due to a muscle strain.

And he is still not 100 percent, per the Liverpool Echo.

Two other players who may miss the game against Watford at Vicarage Road at the weekend are Jordan Henderson and Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Reds have a healthy 22 point lead in the Premier League, which means missing a few players is not a significant issue.

But they will hope to get these players back for their Champions League round of 16 second leg against Atletico Madrid on March 11th.
