Fractured metatarsal. Out for 12 weeks. Poor kid, wishing him a speedy recovery.

We're having absolutely no luck with impact injuries at the moment are we?

Very frustrating, at least we have some cover for the attacking midfielder position with Sykes, Brannagan, Fosu, Baptiste, Henry & Hall if he keeps progressing.

I'm no doctor, but wasn't Wayne Rooney back playing for England just six weeks after fracturing a metatarsal? Although I'd imagine Liverpool won't want to rush him back for a loan club.

"Like many of his fellow Norwegians, the chess genius Magnus Carlsen is obsessed by the Premier League. But this season he has put his obsession to the test, entering Fantasy Premier League, the biggest iteration of the fantasy game in the world. And after this weekend’s fixtures, he stands sixth in the table. That’s sixth out of more than six million players. This is a man who clearly knows when to replace his hapless centreback.

The connection between chess and football is not as unlikely as you might think. Last year, Carlsen played an exhibition match against Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold . The Premier League’s assist machine is a keen chess player, in the past wiling away the down time on European away trips by taking on Ben Woodburn, his fellow Melwood Academy graduate. Since Woodburn went out on loan to Oxford United, Alexander Arnold has taken to his computer for opposition."

Not something you usually associate with your average footballer - good on him!
