Following the game against Manchester United we had a long list of injuries. Unfortunately full back Martin Kelly is likely to be out of action for up to 6 months after scans revealed he suffered an ACL rupture of his right knee. The England international will now require ACL reconstruction.
Fortunately there is better news regarding Daniel Agger and Fabio Borini. It was suspected Agger had suffered medial ligament damage after what initially looked a serious injury in the second half on Sunday, but it has been confirmed that it’s only bad bruising to the knee and could return for the clash against Stoke City if his recovery goes to plan.
There was also good news on Fabio Borinis injury after the club confirmed there was no fracture detected on the X-ray. The Italy international will undergo an MRI scan on Tuesday, after the swelling is reduced, to assess any soft tissue damage.
