Reina doubtful for Merseyside derby

Published Add your comment

Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina is a doubt for this weekend's Merseyside derby, with the Reds unsure whether or not he will recover from his hamstring problem in time.

Having picked up the injury on international duty with Spain, Reina missed the 1-0 Barclays Premier League home win over Reading on Saturday and will not feature in Thursday's Europa League clash with Anzhi Makhachkala, which is also at Anfield.

The 30-year-old will be keen to be involved in the league trip to local rivals Everton on Sunday, and was quoted on Tuesday as saying he was "getting better, little by little" - although he added that he was prepared to be "patient".
