Liverpool have announced that striker Danny Ings will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

Ings is to undergo surgery in London on Wednesday after suffering knee cartilage damage in last week's 2-1 EFL Cup victory over Tottenham at Anfield, and is facing seven to nine months out of action.

The problem is with the 24-year-old's right knee, not the same knee affected when an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained in October last year ruled him out for most of 2015-16.

Emre Can believes Liverpool demonstrated their strength in depth in Saturday's 4-2 Premier League win at Crystal Palace.

The Germany international scored the Reds' first goal at Selhurst Park, having recently returned to Jurgen Klopp's starting XI in place of Georginio Wijnaldum.

Alberto Moreno also started after replacing the absent James Milner and he provided the cross from which Can scored.

Can told Liverpool's official website: "I'm very happy that I scored a goal because in the last few games I had chances and didn't score.

"I'm very happy that I scored after such a long time.

"You can see we have a very strong squad.

"Alberto did very well. He is a very good player and he played with confidence, that's what we need. He did his job very well."
