Liverpool Take Advantage In Europa League Tie

Posted by

An own goal from Andy Webster has given Liverpool a one goal advantage in their Europa League tie against Hearts.

The Reds were without many first team players but take the advantage into the second leg to be played at Anfield.

Andy Carroll missed out through injury and the Liverpool manager revealed the striker will have a scan.

“Andy was due to start. He had a slight twinge on his hamstring. We had a scan on it and it didn’t show a tear, just a slight disruption.

“We tried to give him 48 hours, let him travel and he trained yesterday to see how it was. It was still a bit tight and the medics’ advice was it was too much of a risk for him to play.”

The Reds play Premier League Champions Manchester City this weekend.
