Twenty-five minutes…and SCENE!
Joe Cole goes off injured 25 minutes into Liverpool’s Europa league tie at Gomel. Raheem Sterling on.

No word on the severity, length, whatever. But in general hamstring injuries involve several weeks recovery at the minimum, although judging by some reactions on Twitter, the layout of a player who picked daisies in Northern France with Lille all last season is a crushing blow to the Brendan Rodgers Project.
WHICH IS RIDICULOUS. In 20 appearances, Cole didn’t really light Lille on fire last season. Four goals and three assists. A giant meh in key passes per game. It’ll be okay.
