Liverpool midfielder James Milner is hopeful that he 'won't be out for too long' after he was forced off the pitch against his former club Manchester City during the recent goalless draw at Anfield.
The 32-year-old was substituted after just 28 minutes during the highly anticipated clash on Sunday, with it since being confirmed that the midfielder suffered a hamstring injury.
It is more likely that the veteran midfielder will return to the squad in time for their game against Fulham at Anfield next month, but Milner is still expected to sit out three Premier League games, as well as the club's Champions League doubleheader against Red Star Belgrade.
Milner has since spoken out on social media to offer fans some comfort following his injury last weekend. The England international thanked supporters for their good wishes and added that he shouldn't 'be out for too long', despite the hamstring tear.
He has gone on to make 143 appearances for Liverpool during that time, scoring 17 goals and claiming 31 assists.
