Liverpool handed major boost as Villareal star confirmed out with ‘severe’ injury

Liverpool gave a huge boost as the Villarreal star confirmed an injury

Liverpool received a boost in their hopes of reaching the Champions League final this season, as it emerged that Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno suffered an “acute” hamstring strain in their 2-1 win over Getafe in La Liga.

Moreno was forced out after the first half of the match, and there were concerns about the severity of the injury. Fears now materialized, as he looks set to be sidelined for most of the remainder of Unai Emery’s side-campaign.

The Spanish striker scored 9 goals in 17 games with Unai Emery’s team this season, and scored the net in the Europa League final against Manchester United last season as well.

Liverpool quartet hopes still live

Liverpool’s attempt to do the unprecedented, scoring four times on the domestic and European fronts, continues.

With a tough semi-final against Manchester City thanks to a 3-2 result that stunned Citizens, they now face another Wembley match against Chelsea next month in the final.

Meanwhile, they track Pep Guardiola’s side by one point in the Premier League standings, know they need to be perfect and are counting on Manchester City’s mistake in order to lift the trophy for a second time under Jurgen Klopp.

The two teams may meet with Manchester FC in the Champions League final as well, with both teams qualifying for the semi-finals against the Spanish rivals. Victories for both will see them meet again in Paris in the final, as the two sides fight for the title of best club in Europe.
