Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will await medical reports on three of his top stars following the 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

He is facing the prospect of Fernando Torres (abductor), Xabi Alonso (metatarsal) and Javier Mascherano (foot) being out for weeks after suffering bad injuries against the Gunners on Sunday.

Benitez said: "We had problems when we lost Torres and then Alonso. We could not control the midfield then, we also had Mascherano with a foot injury and had lost (Mohamed) Sissoko beforehand with sickness. We will need to check them all before we have any idea how long they will be without.""
