Injuries were the chief concern of Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson after his side`s 2-1 loss to Tottenham.
The Reds had gone ahead through Martin Skrtel, who then levelled for Spurs when he scored an own goal. Hodgson lost stand-in captain Jamie Carragher late on with a suspected dislocated shoulder, before Aaron Lennon netted a late leveller.
With skipper Steven Gerrard still out and Carragher's fellow defender Daniel Agger on the sidelines, Hodgson has been robbed of both leadership and numbers.
"We've got Agger who's still injured, so we're not really that well blessed with centre-halves," he said, before trying to put a brave face on the situation.
"We've been pretty lucky with injuries, to be fair.
"The injury to Steven Gerrard came at the wrong time. Agger's more of a long-term matter."
