Larouci injury latest

Liverpool are hopeful that Yasser Larouci’s injury in Sunday’s pre-season friendly with Sevilla is not as serious as it first looked and the young defender will only be out of action for a few weeks.

Larouci was stretchered off the pitch at Boston’s Fenway Park after a horrible challenge from Joris Gnagnon.

The club have since confirmed that he has suffered heavy bruising in his femur bone.
