Liverpool could be set for a compensation wrangle with the Italian FA after it emerged Fabio Borini reported for international duty already carrying an injury.

The Italian striker fractured the scaphoid bone in his right foot during a training session with his country's Under-21s on Thursday, an injury which will lead him to be absent for a number of weeks.

But the Italians discovered when they sent him for x-rays that he already had a crack in his ankle from a problem he sustained against Manchester United last month.

Borini's injury leaves Luis Suarez as Liverpool's only fit striker.

Horror fall: Paul Hanagan could be sidelined for months after an arm injury

Horror fall: Paul Hanagan could be sidelined for months after an arm injury

Dual champion jockey Paul Hanagan has been taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for an X-ray on his arm after a fall at Newmarket on Saturday.

Hanagan came down in the 150,000 Tattersalls Millions 3-Y-O Cup when riding No Dominion, who clipped heels with the Richard Hughes-ridden Viewpoint.

Newmarket's director of racing
Michael Prosser said: 'Paul is stable and has just been taken to
Addenbrooke's for precautionary X-rays.

'His wife is following him to the hospital and the family are all aware of the situation.

'We have to praise the medical staff for their quick attention.'

Angus Gold, racing manager to Sheikh
Hamdan Al Maktoum, Hanagan's employer, said: 'We've heard that he might
have cracked his elbow, either that or it's badly bruised. As well as
that, he's got a dead leg.

'If it's the elbow, it could be serious and that will be a shame for him as he's just getting going.'

Injury concern: James Anderson

Injury concern: James Anderson

There were fresh concerns over James Anderson's fitness after he managed to bowl just one over on day two of Lancashire's LV= County Championship Division One match against Nottinghamshire.

The England paceman suffered bruising to his right thumb after taking two blows in the field on his return to county action yesterday but was cleared of any breakage after being sent for X-rays.

There was no hint of any discomfort when he came out to bat in Thrsday's afternoon session, largely because he was dismissed for a golden duck by England team-mate Graeme Swann.

Anderson took the new ball as Nottinghamshire began their second innings but managed only six deliveries before returning to the dressing room.

Lancashire have said there is nothing to be concerned about and that Anderson is simply 'under the weather', but with Tom Smith already unable to bowl due to a hamstring injury, that seems a flimsy reason for the club's premier seamer, who did not re-emerge after tea, to be off the field.
