It has been confirmed that right-back Martin Kelly will miss one month of action due to the hamstring injury picked up at the end of the first half in Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham on Sunday.
Kelly pulled up with the injury just before the break after making a promising run down the right wing for the Reds.
After a scan at Melwood on Monday, the club’s Head of Sport Science and Medicine, Dr Peter Brukner has confirmed that the injury will see Kelly miss all of March’s games.
This means he will sit out of Sunday’s Premier League clash at home to Manchester Utd, the two Europa League games – home and away – against Braga and the league trip to Sunderland. He should return for the game against West Brom on April 2nd.
The news comes to a major blow for Kenny Dalglish’s men, who also have injury problems surrounding Daniel Agger, Fabio Aurelio and Raul Meireles.
