Fernando Torres will miss Liverpool’s crucial UEFA Champions League tie with Besiktas on Wednesday.
The club’s record signing is still struggling with the thigh injury collected on international duty for Spain last week.
Though Torres has been training with his team-mates, he has not travelled with the squad for the game in Istanbul.
However, the striker’s fellow Spaniard – Xabi Alonso – has been included in the party after recovering from a metatarsal injury picked up last month.
Alonso has not played for Liverpool since the 0-0 draw at Portsmouth but is in the squad to tackle Besiktas.
