Charlie Adam could miss the remainder of the season after being sent to see a specialist in London about his knee injury.
The Scottish international is unlikely to feature against Wigan on Saturday after picking up a knee problem during the 3-2 defeat to QPR on Wednesday night.
While the extent of the injury isn't clear yet Liverpool sent the former Blackpool midfielder to see a specialist in Harley Street on Friday to assess the situation.
The Reds fear Adam could have damaged his knee ligaments and may require surgery to correct the issue, meaning he would likely miss what remains of the campaign, according to the Daily Express.
Liverpool have already lost one midfielder to a knee ligament injury this season after Lucas was ruled out for up to year in November after rupturing his cruciate ligament.
Adam has found himself out of the starting XI picture recently following the return of Steven Gerrard to full fitness but the news he could miss the rest of the campaign will still be a blow to manager Kenny Dalglish.
