Liverpool will have to wait to discover the full extent of striker Fernando Torres' knee injury after he was examined by a specialist.

The Spain international missed Sunday's goalless draw at home to Fulham - a result which caused a huge dent in Liverpool's top-four aspirations - to travel to Spain for an assessment. He received some treatment on Monday but will be reassessed later in the week.

"Fernando Torres was examined by a knee specialist on Monday afternoon in Spain," a club statement read. "He received treatment and will continue to do so over the next few days, with the injury being reassessed later this week."

Liverpool's next match is not until next Monday, at home to West Ham, but probably of more significance now is the Europa League semi-final first leg at Atletico Madrid - Torres' former club - on April 22.
