Liverpool’ Raul Meireles has been ruled out of Wednesday’s trip to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers.

The Portuguese midfielder was subbed after just 20 minutes of the win over Bolton at Anfield on Saturday, being replaced by Steven Gerrard of course.

The injury though is just bruising on his ankle and he should be available for Sunday’s trip to Old Trafford to face Man United in the FA Cup.

Assistant manager Sammy Lee told lfc.tv “Unfortunately he’s not available for Blackburn but he’s a tough cookie and hopefully he will be back for Sunday.”

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is available to order exclusively on This Is Anfield — the history of the Reds in one image!
