Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has ruled out recalling Andy Carroll from West Ham United.Luis Suarez is Rodgers' only fit senior striker after Fabio Borini was ruled out for three months with a broken metatarsal.

Yet when asked if a Carroll return was on the cards, Rodgers insisted: "It's not something I am considering, to be honest.

"Andy's gone there to get games and obviously we have people watching him and how he's doing.

"The Fabio situation has just come up but, although it's not ideal, they're the cards we've been dealt."
