Liverpool have received a timely boost with the news that the injury suffered by Raul Meireles in Wednesday's 3-1 Carling Cup victory at Exeter City is not as bad as first feared.

The 28-year-old midfielder was withdrawn just 20 minutes into the game at St. James' Park after falling awkwardly on his collar bone.

Early indications suggested the Portuguese star could be facing an extensive spell on the sidelines, but a revised prognosis from Anfield club doctors have revealed Meireles should be back in action in a couple of weeks.

"It's his collar bone that is damaged, but it's only a week or two," Dalglish told

"We've been quite fortunate with that. A week or two will be the maximum."


There has been plenty of speculation surrounding Meireles' future, after the club strengthened considerably in the midfield area over the summer with the addition of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam.

But Meireles has reaffirmed his commitment to the Liverpool cause, and vowed to fight for his place in the Reds side when he returns to action in September.
