Liverpool have been boosted by the news that the injury to Lazar Markovic is not as bad as first feared.

The Serbian looked to have become the latest Liverpool player to hit by the injury curse whilst on international duty, after being forced off after just 20 minutes of his countries 1-1 draw with Armenia.

Initial reports suggested the winger could be out for up to a month with a suspected muscle tear, but the £20million summer signing from Benfica has declared himself fit for tomorrow’s game with Albania.

On his Facebook page, Markovic said: “I’m ready for match tomorrow! Injury is not as bad as it seemed at first sight.”

The news will come as a boost to Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, who is still waiting for news on the injury sustained by defender Dejan Lovren during his time with Croatia.
