Borini suffers metatarsal misery

Liverpool's hopes of success this season have been dealt a major blow with the news that forward Fabio Borini has suffered a broken foot on international duty with the Italy Under-21 squad.

• Suso set for new deal

Borini, signed from AS Roma in the summer, sustained the injury during a training session ahead of the Italian side's Euro 2013 play-off match against Sweden and now faces weeks on the sidelines. Which metatarsal bone Borini has broken will determine the length of his recovery.

The injury, confirmed early on Thursday by an MRI scan, leaves Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers with only Luis Suarez as a recognised senior striker.

Rodgers allowed Andy Carroll to join West Ham on loan 48 hours before the summer transfer window closed on the understanding he would be able to bring in a replacement, but no new face was forthcoming before the deadline passed.

Borini's only goal for Liverpool came in the Europa League qualifying win over Gomel in August, but his injury leaves them short of options and reliant on Suarez.
