Kuyt suffers shoulder injury

Kuyt suffered the injury during training while on international duty with Netherlands, and boss Bert van Marwijk said he would "probably have a few weeks off" as a result of the problem. Kuyt returned to England for further tests on Monday and Liverpool have now confirmed he faces a month on the sidelines.

Club doctor Peter Brukner said: "Dirk has damaged his shoulder at the A-C joint, which is between the collar bone and the shoulder. He is likely to be out for four weeks."

As a result of the injury, Kuyt is set to miss games against Birmingham, Steaua Bucharest, Manchester United, Northampton, Sunderland and Utrecht.
