Fullback Jose Enrique is not expected back in training for another ten days.

Fullback Jose Enrique has had a terrible start to the season. But crucial to Liverpool's plans moving forward is the question of whether or not his poor form is temporary, or a more permanent issue. Perhaps, we're learning that the issue is just an injury. Brendan Rodgers admits that Enrique has knee pain, and is not expected back in training for another ten days.

Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Jose Enrique is closing in on a return to full training at Melwood – and the boss is hopeful of having the full-back available for selection in the not too distant future.

A knee complaint has meant the Spaniard has not figured for the Reds since the Europa League tie against Young Boys on September 20, and has featured just twice in the Barclays Premier League.

Rodgers told Liverpoolfc.com: "He hasn't been [available for selection] in the last couple of weeks. It's unfortunate - he's got a pain in his knee that he was struggling with. We've been trying to treat it conservatively.

"Hopefully within the next week to 10 days he'll be back out on the training field and hopefully there will be no reaction.

This indicates that youngster Andre Wisdom will continue in the side for the time-being. Wisdom has played well and is returning fantasy points on the back of Liverpools nil-nil draw with Stoke City. Next up for the Reds is a home date against Reading which should see significant fantasy investment in Liverpool, including the likes of Wisdom (still well priced in the Yahoo! game), Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, and Jose Reina.
