John Sheridan: Hoping striker makes a swift recovery

The 17-year-old lasted just 11 minutes of the second string's 2-0 win over Torquay on Tuesday before being substituted after a tackle with Gulls defender Angus McDonald.

Harvey left Home Park on crutches as a precaution but it is hoped he could be available for the Pilgrims' vital clash with Aldershot this weekend.

"Tyler had an impact injury to the side of his knee," Argyle coach Kevin Nancekivell told the Plymouth Herald.

"I have spoken to Paul (Atkinson) the physio, and he's hopeful that it's not too serious. Tyler is on crutches but only as a precaution.

"Fingers crossed he could be available for Saturday. We will wait and see what develops over the next 24 hours."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
