James Milner hopes to be able to feature in Liverpool’s match against Manchester City after the break.
A hamstring injury sidelined Milner for Liverpool’s defeat to Crystal Palace, but after pulling out of England’s friendlies, he hopes he’ll be able to play against City.
Milner left the Etihad for Anfield on a free transfer after spending five years with Manchester City.
“It’s always disappointing to miss any games – and obviously missing last weekend and the England games is disappointing,” Milner told Liverpool’s official website.
“It shouldn’t be too long and hopefully I’ll be back for the next game, but we’ll have to wait and see.
“You never like to put a timeframe on it because it’s a hamstring and they’re always difficult and a bit unpredictable, but hopefully I’ll be alright.
“It’s disappointing, but these things happen and hopefully I’ll be back soon.”
