Liverpool duo out with injury
Liverpool duo Yossi Benayoun and Albert Riera have been ruled out of action for a month. The double blow will hurt Rafa Benitez's plans for a turnaround in poor form after he confirmed both would be sidelined for the extended period.
Torres is also on the sidelines, and Benitez needs to assess his options: "We will see how he reacts. We are not considering an operation yet. We haven't got a deadline. We just need to see how he is every day."
Both have torn their hamstrings which will keep them out of action for a month.
