Leading scorer Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is the biggest cause for concern. The 15-goal striker was forced off after 64 minutes with an ankle injury following a challenge from former West Brom defender Paul Robinson and Wolves boss Dean Saunders fears he could miss the remainder of the season.

"He is possibly out for the season with ankle ligament damage. Fingers crossed that's not the case, but we'll have to see," said Saunders after Monday's match.

"He went over on his ankle and I think it's partly down to fatigue and stretching."

Ebanks-Blake was not the only casualty. Jamie O'Hara was struggling with a dead leg from Saturday's 3-2 win against Middlesbrough and had to be withdrawn after 57 minutes, while man-of-the-match David Davis carried on despite a groin problem.

Saunders added: "David was signalling to come off, but we had to leave him out there. It was just tiredness. Jamie played with a dead leg which he hadn't fully got over."

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!
