Fernando Torres is in his native Spain this week to try to discover the exact nature of his latest knee injury.
The striker was badly missed in Sunday’s draw with Fulham, so everyone at Anfield is praying that he will be fit to resume as soon as possible.
Initial scans, both at Anfield and today in Spain, suggest that there is only slight swelling of the Meniscus which is a small c-shaped ligament around the fibula.
He is being treated by knee-specialist Ramon Cugat who is planning a further test on Nando later this week.
Should he need surgery, he would be out for four to six weeks, this would be a disaster for Liverpool in the hunt for European glory.
However, initial reports seem positive and he may just need ice-packs and some physiotherapy on his knee.
It is hoped that he will be fit to return to action within a week.
I had this story a full day before everyone else, well done me!
