Alonso out two months with broken ankle

 

Xabi Alonso has joined Liverpool's growing injury list and is set for two months out with a broken ankle.

He misses the trip to Norwich tomorrow and it is increasingly unlikely that striker Milan Baros will be risked at Carrow Road as he battles to overcome his hamstring problems.

Manager Rafael Benitez is also without Chris Kirkland, Josemi, Vladimir Smicer, Djibril Cisse and Harry Kewell long term which leaves him with very few alternatives. Neil Mellor and Antonio Nunez could both come into the starting line-up.
