Steven Gerrard limped off with a hamstring injury, much to the consternation of Liverpool's fitness coach, who publicly expressed his frustration on Twitter. The midfielder is now expected to be out for up to four weeks.
Man City keeper Joe Hart and Arsenal midfielderJack Wilshere both pulled out before the match at Wembley after taking knocks to back and ankle respectively, but could recover in time for the weekend.
John Terry withdrew from the squad too, citing a nerve problem in his leg that could take a while to get sorted, meaning Chelsea will have to do without both him and Alex for the foreseeable future.
And Spurs have yet another injury on their hands after midfielder Tom Huddlestone was ruled out until the new year with an ankle injury that requires surgery.
