Brendan Rodgers is hopeful Martin Skrtel will be fit in time to face Manchester United on Sunday after admitting he feared the worst over a groin injury sustained by Kolo Toure in the 4-2 win over Notts County. The Ivorian defender was stretchered off with the game at 2-2 and is now a doubt for the weekend, along with Joe Allen and Aly Cissokho. “Kolo Toure, we need to assess it,” Rodgers said. “His groin opened up a wee bit. He overstretched his groin and it doesn’t look so good, to be honest.” Skrtel has yet to feature this season due to injury but he could be back for David Moyes‘ first trip to Anfield as Manchester United manager. “Yes, he will be fine,” said the boss. “Tonight was too soon for him but he’s been back training for a few days.” Rodgers also provided an update on the conditions of Allen and Cissokho, who also had to leave the field in Tuesday’s League Cup encounter. “Cissokho was devastated,” he said. “He shouldn’t be too long. He’s got a knock in his ankle. He was distraught to come off in his first start here. “Joe Allen may well be a hamstring so we’ll have a look at that. “We’ll know more in the morning but it wasn’t a good night injury-wise.” Filed under: Fenway Sports Group, Headlines, Liverpool FC, Liverpool FC Staff, Premier League, Soccer
