Liverpool lose Pennant for run-in

Winger Jermaine Pennant will miss the remainder of Liverpool FC's bid to revive their UEFA Champions League Group A fortunes because of a fractured leg.

Winger Jermaine Pennant will miss the remainder of Liverpool FC's bid to advance from UEFA Champions League Group A as he is expected to be sidelined for about ten weeks because of a fractured leg.

Defeat in Turkey
"For the last eight weeks Jermaine has undergone intensive treatment between matches," said a Liverpool statement. "But following an acute exacerbation of the problem during the game against Beşiktaş [JK] it has now been decided he requires surgery." Pennant, who was substituted in the 59th minute of the 2-1 UEFA Champions League defeat in Turkey on Wednesday which left the Reds at the foot of the section, has a stress fracture of the right tibia. Liverpool entertain Premier League leaders Arsenal FC on Sunday.
