Liverpool's Enrique facing six-week layoff

Liverpool has been dealt a major blow after it was revealed Friday that defender Jose Enrique will be out of action for approximately six weeks with a hamstring injury.

The Spaniard was injured in the club's win at QPR on Sunday and looks likely to be sidelined until late February.

"He will probably be out for up to six weeks with his hamstring," said Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. "It's a shame because in the game he felt nothing. Sometimes you can enter games and be tight and stiff but he felt great. It was unfortunate he has done that because he has looked fantastic in the (recent) games."
