Boss Brendan Rodgers confirmed full back Jose Enrique could be out of action for six weeks with a hamstring tear.
The 26 year old was withdrawn during the Red’s win over Queens Park Rangers last weekend with a hamstring injury but scans now reveal tear in his hamstring which will keep him out of action for at least 6 weeks.
Rodgers said in his Press Conference:
“He has looked fantastic in the games but it looks like he’ll probably be out for up to six weeks with his hamstring. It’s a shame because in the game he felt nothing. Sometimes you can enter the games and be tight and stiff. He felt great, and even within the game.”
It remains to be seen if Liverpool will be tempted to look at signing another left back this transfer window or it could be time to give Jack Robinson a chance.
Does Liverpool need strengthening? Of course it does. But Luis Suarez is doing a good job of trying to hide this fact.
That second goal should have never been but Suarez had one thing in mind. He got bumped off by Carlos Cuellar, regained his balance, and then as the defender collapsed in a heap corralled the ball and put the burners on. The Uruguayan came at Simone Mignolet from an angle and finished off with superb placement.
Last season Suarez seemed to struggle, missing an awful lot of good opportunities, but this season it seems harder for him to miss at the moment. Liverpool climb to eighth and they could go a lot higher if they can continue this form.
Looks like Joe Cole’s disappointing time at Anfield could soon be over after he has been told he is free to find another club.
West Ham appear to be the front runners for his signature and have started talks. Reports are he will be available on a free transfer, Liverpool will have to pay Joe Cole a settlement tho to cancel his current deal and get his £100,000 a week salary off the wage bill.
Joe Cole was signed from Chelsea on a free transfer in 2010. But after being sent off in his first match he never really settled in. He was then loaned to French club Lille last season.
Unfortunately Joe Cole will likely go down as one of Roy Hodgson’s most costly transfers due to his ridiculous wages he was receiving while hardly ever playing.
Liverpool look set to complete the signing of Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge after he successfully passed a medical at Melwood.
Liverpool will formally announce the deal when transfer window reopens on January 2.
Ex Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez confirmed about the medical when asked to comment on the rumours linking Sturridge to Liverpool. He said:
“The information I have is that he was there today, passing a medical. But we don’t have any more information at the moment.”
The fee agreed between the two clubs for the 23 year old is rumoured to be in the region of £12 million with a 3 and half year long contract.
I think if Sturridge could be great for us, I just hope the deal goes through smoothly. What do you think?
