Andrew Johnson (l): Set to see injury specialist

The 33-year-old, who has been plagued by knee problems in recent seasons, is currently sidelined by an ankle ailment.

Boss Harry Redknapp therefore remains desperately short of firepower with top scorer Charlie Austin recovering from a shoulder operation, Kevin Doyle struggling with a knee problem and Bobby Zamora still short of fitness following an injury-hit season.

"AJ is not fit, he's got an ankle injury and he's going to see the specialist again," said Redknapp.

"Charlie is out long-term, although he will be back before the end of the season.

"Bobby had a game on Tuesday for the reserves. Kevin tweaked a knee ligament last Saturday and we have to see how it settles down."

It was left to on-loan Manchester United youngster Will Keane to lead Rangers' attack at Brighton on Tuesday night, but the visitors drew another blank as they crashed to a 2-0 defeat.

However, Redknapp added: "Young Will Keane worked hard, he's only a boy and he just needs a goal. I can't fault his effort.

"He'll be okay, he'll be a good player and I'm sure he'll score some goals for us."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
