Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana have flown to Miami in a bid to be fit for Liverpool’s run-in.
Both players missed the Merseyside derby victory over Everton on Saturday due to injury problems.
Lallana faces up to a month on the sidelines, while Henderson is expected to miss the games with Bournemouth and Stoke at the very least.
The captain has not featured since the win over Tottenham on February 11, with Jurgen Klopp admitting last week that he had suffered a setback in his recovery. He had originally been pencilled in to return for Saturday’s Merseyside derby with Everton.
Henderson missed a large part of last season with a heel issue, at one stage flying to New Jersey for specialist treatment as part of his rehabilitation.
There is no suggestion at this stage that this trip to the USA is of a similar nature, or that any medical treatment or visits are planned, more a change of scenery as he and Lallana look to prepare themselves for what will be a crucial last eight games this season.

Jurgen Klopp speaks after win over Everton
Liverpool will assess the injury suffered by forward Sadio Mane against Everton. The Senegal international was taken off early in the second half after an awkward fall during a challenge with Leighton Baines.
Klopp reported afterwards that Mane was unlikely to be fit for Wednesday’s clash with Bournemouth at Anfield, but the 24-year-old was able to walk unaided out of the ground on Saturday afternoon, offering a thumbs up to reporters who inquired as to his well-being.
