Yossi Benayoun faces up to three weeks on the sidelines after a training ground accident saw the current form man collided with a team-mate – causing a torn hamstring.

The Israeli scored the winning goal in Liverpool’s 1-0 victory in the Bernabeu over Real Madrid ten days ago and now looks set to miss both the second leg at Anfield on Tuesday and his side’s visit to Old Trafford next Saturday. He could also be set to miss his national side’s qualifier against Greece later this month.

Benayoun has emerged as a key figure in recent weeks after giving his side a 1-0 first-leg lead in their last 16 tie with Real and following up with the goal that confirmed a 2-0 win over Sunderland at Anfield last week.

But, if the initial diagnosis proves correct, he will miss the return with Real, a visit to Old Trafford that Liverpool have to win to retain any fading title hopes and possibly even the following weekend’s home game with Aston Villa.

It is not the first injury blow to the Reds this season, with Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard both serving spells out of the side with minor injuries.
