Liverpool striker Fernando Torres suffered a hamstring injury on Wednesday during a Champions League match against Marseille and will be out for two to three weeks. The Spaniard had only just returned to the side after a similar injury.

Liverpool's Premier League title push suffered a setback on Thursday when their Spanish international striker Fernando Torres was ruled out for up to three weeks with a hamstring strain.

Torres, who had only just returned to the side after five weeks out with a similar problem, picked up the injury in the 1-0 Champions League win over Marseille at Anfield on Wednesday.

Defender Fabio Aurelio will be out for a fortnight after picking up a calf problem in the same game.

A club spokesman told www.liverpoolfc.tv: "Fernando has a strain in his right hamstring and will be out of action for between two and three weeks. Fabio has a calf strain in his left leg and will be out for two weeks."
