Liverpool to be without Borini until January

Brendan Rodgers’ already depleted Liverpool strike force has taken another hit with the confirmation that Italy striker Fabio Borini has fractured a bone in his foot and faces up to three months out of action, the Liverpool Daily Post has reported.

Fabio Borini with Brendan Rodgers

Borini only moved to Anfield over the summer, returning to the Premier League from Serie A side Roma, but has yet to score his first league goal for his new club. Borini formerly played as a youth and reserve team player at Chelsea and had a loan spell with Swansea City, working both times with Rodgers.

The newspaper adds that Borini originally suffered the injury playing for Liverpool against Manchester United but worsened the damage while with his national team this week. The decision was made by the Liverpool medical team for Borini to undergo surgery to correct the problem.

Borini’s absence leaves Luis Suarez as Rodgers’ only senior striker, Liverpool having allowed Andy Carroll to move on loan to West Ham United late in the transfer window and then proving unable to draft in a replacement.

The Post claims Rodgers will be forced to turn to some of his younger players, a policy the manager has already employed by blooding the likes of defender Andre Wisdom and winger Raheem Sterling.
