The Spaniard had hoped a period of rest would be sufficient after he was kicked on the bone during the 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace on October 5.

But after weeks out of the side, and just 45 minutes of football against Fulham earlier this month, manager Brendan Rodgers revealed surgery would be required to clear up the problem.

And in a statement on their official website, Liverpool confirmed the 27-year-old has 'successfully undergone arthroscopic surgery to resolve an issue with his right knee'.

It added: "Enrique is expected to return to full training at Melwood in around 10 weeks' time."
