Christian Benteke Has MRI On Hamstring, Doubtful To Play Vs. Carlisle

Gary McAllister on Tuesday provided an update on the fitness of several senior members of the Liverpool squad, including Christian Benteke, who is set to undergo an injury scan.

The summer signing from Aston Villa was withdrawn at halftime during Sunday’s draw with Norwich City at Anfield due to tightness in his hamstring.

Benteke will be further assessed today, while McAllister also confirmed Jordan Henderson’s operation on his broken metatarsal was a success.

Speaking to reporters at a pre-Carlisle United press conference at Melwood on Tuesday morning, the first-team coach said “Christian will have an MRI scan today and hopefully they’ll find the problem. He’s got a little problem with his hamstring.

“Everybody (else) is good. Jordan’s come through fine. There’s not really a timescale on that, but everything went well there.

“We’re picking from nearly a full squad (for Carlisle).”
