Liverpool midfielder Momo Sissoko will be out of action for two weeks, not even able to train until after that length of time has passed, after suffering a knee ligament injury last night.
Sissoko was stretchered off in obvious pain last night and will be missed until he returns. Thankfully though, due to the stop-start nature of the Premiership season, he may well miss just one Liverpool game. Liverpool play West Ham on Saturday but then there’s no game until 9th September when it’s the small matter of the Merseyside derby.
Liverpool’s Head of Press explain the player’s condition earlier today: “Momo had a scan today which showed a tear of the medial ligament in his left knee. We do not expect him to be able to play or train for the next two weeks.”
Momo joins a number of players in the treatment room, including three ankle injury victims from the Reds’ last two games – Stephen Warnock, Jamie Carragher and John Arne Riise.
