Premier League

Liverpool striker Fabio Borini out for three months


Liverpool expect to be without Fabio Borini for around three months after an operation on a fractured bone in his foot.

The injury forced the forward's early return from international duty with Italy Under-21s last week.

Borini has yet to score in five Premier League games since his summer move from Roma but his absence will be keenly felt with Liverpool having only one other senior forward, Luis Suarez, on their books.
