Martin Kelly injury latest

Martin Kelly is hopefuly of a swift return to action after a hamstring injury forced him off prematurely in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham.

The Liverpool right-back pulled up with the problem as he ran down the right wing shortly before half time.

“I knew straight away I had injured my hamstring,” he told the club’s official website.

“I took Scott Parker on down the right and when I took my last touch I felt a pull in my hamstring and there was no way I could carry on.

“I’m usually a quick healer and we have good medical staff at the club so hopefully I will be back soon.”

Kelly underwent a scan on the injury at Melwood this morning, with the results expected later today to give the Reds a better idea of the extent of the injury.

It is expected that Kelly will miss around a month of action, with games against Manchester United, Sunderland and Braga on the horizon.
