Liverpool midfielder Salif Diao has damaged ankle ligaments and is set to be out of action for three weeks.

The Senegalese player suffered the injury on Tuesday at the club’s Melwood training ground and will not feature again until January.

The Reds are already without star striker Michael Owen with a thigh injury and Harry Kewell with the same problem as Diao.

Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier told the club’s official website www.liverpoolfc.tv: “There was no-one else involved. He went over on his ankle and we expect he will be missing for three weeks.”
