Mascherano to recover during ban
Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano will use his four-match ban
from the Premier League to recover from a knee injury that he
sustained when earning a red card in a tackle.
Liverpool says Mascherano has a medial ligament strain that
will keep him out for up to three weeks.
Mascherano was sent off in Liverpool’s 2-0 loss at Portsmouth
on Saturday. He will now miss the games against Wolverhampton
Wanderers, Aston Villa, Reading and Tottenham.
