Kelly out until the new year

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Martin Kelly has ruled himself out of action until the new year after injuring his knee.

The full-back limped off late in Sunday's 2-1 defeat at home to Manchester United after falling awkwardly and appearing to twist his right leg. Liverpool have yet to confirm the extent of the problem but Kelly himself does not expect to be back for at least three months.

"What I can say is its not the worst injury I've had, and for sure I'll be fighting for my place next year when I'm back fitter and stronger!" he wrote on Twitter.
