Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers revealed Andy Carroll missed the 1-0 win over Hearts in the Europa League with a hamstring problem, while confirming he is edging closer to signing Nuri Sahin.

The Real Madrid midfielder has also been linked with a move to Barclays Premier League rivals Arsenal but looks set for a switch to Anfield, with Rodgers hopeful that a deal is imminent.

The manager, who had an own-goal from Andy Webster with 12 minutes left to thank for his side's first-leg victory, said: "Hopefully in the next 24 hours we will get some confirmation on that. It's quite far along. He's a very good footballer."
