Gerrard injured foot in Toulouse match

August 15, 2007

TOULOUSE, France, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard sustained a foot injury during his team's 1-0 victory at Toulouse in their Champions League qualifying third round match on Wednesday.

Gerrard was replaced by Momo Sissoko after Toulouse midfielder Achille Emana stepped on the England midfielder's right foot 20 minutes into the second half.

A Liverpool official said that Gerrard had received a kick on his toe and could not say whether he would be doubtful for this weekend's Premier League game against Chelsea.

'I was already thinking of replacing him,' said Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez.
