Aspas injury blow for Liverpool

18 October 2013 15:46

Liverpool striker Iago Aspas has been ruled out until December with a thigh injury.

The Spaniard, who has made six appearances for Brendan Rogers' side since joining from Celta Vigo in the close-season, suffered a torn thigh muscle in training on Thursday.

He is set to miss at least five matches, including a trip to Arsenal and the Merseyside derby against Everton at Goodison Park on November 23.

Liverpool announced the news in a statement on their official website on Friday, confirming their expectation that the 26-year-old would be "available for a return by the beginning of December".

They are scheduled to play seven matches that month, kicking off with an away fixture at Hull City.

Rodgers has guided his men to a five wins and a draw from the opening seven games, a run that leaves them joint top with Arsenal.

Next up is a showdown with Newcastle United at St James' Park on Saturday.
