Pepe Reina could miss Liverpool's forthcoming Premier League clash against Reading after picking up a hamstring injury on international duty, reports talkSPORT.

The incident happened while the 30-year-old was warming up during the half-time interval of Spain's 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with France on Tuesday evening.

Reina will be assessed by the Anfield club's medical staff when he returns to Melwood later today, where it will be decided if he is okay to feature in Saturday's home match on Merseyside.

Brendan Rodgers has selected the Spaniard for every Premier League game so far this season, but may be forced into recalling Brad Jones - who last featured for Liverpool in their 2-1 Capital One Cup victory against West Brom at The Hawthorns last month.

On Reina's injury, the Royal Spanish Football Federation said: "It has been reported to the medical services team, which will perform tests to find out the additional information they require."

Sergio Ramos gave the hosts a first-half lead, only for Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud to score a 94th minute equaliser to deny Vicente del Bosque's side a 25th consecutive World Cup qualifying victory at the Vicente Calderon stadium.
