Liverpool midfielder Emre Can is set to be out of action for four to six weeks due to ruptured ankle ligaments.

The No.23 picked up the injury during Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final victory over Borussia Dortmund at Anfield.

Can was substituted in the closing stages of the 4-3 win which saw the Reds progress to a last-four meeting with Villarreal.

A return before the end of the season has not been ruled out for the 22-year-old, who has made 46 appearances so far in 2015-16.
