Recent new signing has struggled for form in front of goal on Merseyside since joining the Reds last summer.
Liverpool have suffered yet another injury blow after it was revealed that recently arrived front man Iago Aspas will be missing for the next six weeks of the season after the Spaniard tore a thigh muscle in training on Thursday, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The striker is currently in his first campaign with the Merseyside giants after arriving at Anfield from Liga outfit Celta de Vigo last May on a five-year deal for a fee of just £7.7 million.
However, it is fair to say that Aspas has struggled badly for both form and goals since he first arrived on Merseyside during the summer, with the 26-year-old having still to even find the back of the net for his new club in this campaign.
In total, Aspas had featured in six Premier League matches for the Reds before suffering his injury setback in training at Melwood ahead of the club’s trip to take on Newcastle United in the Premier League at St James’ Park on Saturday lunch time in front of the live TV cameras.
And now Liverpool head coach will be without his diminutive front man until at least December, although the Northern Irishman may have England international Glen Johnson back from injury against the Magpies this weekend.
