Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard face injury scansFernando Torres and Steven Gerrard will have scans on the injuries suffered during the FA Cup defeat by Reading, says Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.

Torres limped off in the first half with a twisted knee and Gerrard was replaced at half-time because of a hamstring problem.

Midfielder Yossi Benayoun also has a knee injury and will be assessed on Thursday, confirmed Benitez.

Shane Long scored in extra-time as Reading came from behind to win 2-1.

Benitez, whose only realistic hope of silverware this season is now the Europa League, will be hopeful that the damage to his leading scorer and captain is minimal.

Gerrard and Torres have already missed significant portions of the season with groin injuries.

Gerrard was out of action for six weeks after picking up an injury on England duty in October, while Torres has missed five league games and has admitted to playing through the pain barrier.
