Captain Gareth Barry could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after injuring his hip during training yesterday.
He had to be put on the back of a buggy in the end to transport him so he could be attended to properly by the clubs medical staff.
He had undergone a scan today to determine the full extent of the injury, but as yet I'm yet to see any updates.
Slightly better news however for others, as O'Neill has admitted that Mellberg is not back in training yet, but he is feeling better. There is an outside chance he will be ok for the Liverpool match.
And Berger has started training again, although no trees are being pulled up at the moment.
