Liverpool blow as Benayoun injured in training

Liverpool suffered an injury blow after a training ground accident left man-of-the-moment Yossi Benayoun facing at least a fortnight on the sidelines, reports Sportsmail.

Liverpool suffered an injury blow after a training ground accident left man-of-the-moment Yossi Benayoun facing at least a fortnight on the sidelines, reports Sportsmail.

Benayoun headed Liverpool's winning goal against Real Madrid in the Champions' League but seems certain to miss Tuesday's return leg at Anfield and next Saturday's all-important lunchtime showdown with Manchester United.

Sportsmail understands the in-form Israel midfielder collided with a team-mate in training and immediately hobbled off with what initial reports suggest is a slight hamstring tear.
