Liverpool travel to Hull City today with some genuine worries over some of their key players - including Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho, Martin Skrtel and Luis Suarez.

Martin Skrtel picked up a nasty knock in training yesterday and was pictured being treated by the teams medical team. Luis Suarez was also seen rolling around in agony during the session while Philippe Coutinho has been suffering with an ankle problem.

However while these rumours and murmurings remain just that, Daniel Sturridge could be out for six weeks after leaving Melwood on crutches yesterday with ankle ligament damage.

So Hull will have hope ahead of the fixture - although have injury worries themselves over Paul McShane and Curtis Davies - although James Chester has returned to action after a two month absence.
