Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno could be sidelined for potentially up to six weeks with an ankle injury.

The defender will be assessed by a second specialist over the weekend but the fear is the problem, sustained in Wednesday's 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow, could keep him out until the new year.

James Milner is likely to fill the vacancy for Sunday's Merseyside derby at home to Everton while captain Jordan Henderson is set to start in midfield after sitting out in midweek.

Liverpool have reported Spartak Moscow to UEFA after teenage striker Rhian Brewster was allegedly subjected to racist abuse.

England's Under-19 World Cup winner was visibly angry at the end of the Reds' 2-0 UEFA Youth League win at Prenton Park and had to be restrained by team-mates and coaching staff at the final whistle.

Liverpool confirmed they have "followed the proper procedure by reporting the alleged incident to UEFA" and Press Association Sport understands the incident is believed to relate to alleged racist abuse.

It is the second time this season Liverpool have been forced to act against the Russian club after Brewster's team-mate Bobby Adekanye was racially abused by fans during the game in Moscow in September.

Spartak were found guilty on that occasion and ordered to partially close their academy ground for one match.
