Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson expects left-back Paul Konchesky to miss the Reds' two games this week due to a hamstring strain sustained against Sunderland on Saturday. Hodgson is unsure as to the severity of the injury, although he does not think the 29-year-old will require a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
"He's got a hamstring strain," Hodgson told the club's official website.
"I couldn't tell you exactly how bad it is yet. I don't think it's extremely bad but I certainly think it would rule him out for Thursday and next Sunday.
"Hopefully it won't be much more problematic."
