A knee injury sustained over the international break did not heal in time for Joe Allen to make the squad in Week 4, and Brendan Rodgers since has announced that the midfielder will remain out for a few weeks more.
With Allen out for a stretch, Rodgers will likely ask for Jordan Henderson to focus more on his defensive responsibilities, assisting Steven Gerrard in central midfield, and should allow for Phillipe Coutinho to get an extended run in the starting XI until Allen returns. This makes Henderson as less attractive option in fantasy and Coutinho a potentially sneaky, rewarding investment. Sep 19 - 7:29 PM

Joe Allen recently returned from injury and started Liverpool's last game against Southampton in place of Raheem Sterling.

Allen came off the bench in Liverpool's game against Swansea the week before and his play was good enough to earn him a start. The move may have been tactical, in an attempt to contain Southampton's midfield, so it's not necessarily certain that he'll keep starting. Avoid both Allen and Sterling until the situation settles.

Joe Allen, who has been so important to Liverpool in Steven Gerrard's absence, will miss some time with an abductor strain he picked up against Chelsea.

Steven Gerrard is returning from injury, so Allen's absence won't be felt too strongly. Still, it leaves Liverpool's midfield dangerously thing - especially since Jordan Henderson barely escaped his own injury after a bad tackle by Samuel Eto'o.

Midfielder Joe Allen could be available to face Newcastle United this weekend after coming back from a variety of injuries.

Allen return is being touted by the club as the cliched "like a new signing". He will give Liverpool some much needed depth in central midfield behind Lucas Leiva and Steven Gerrard.

Joe Allen tweaked his hamstring, Aly Cissokho took a knock to his ankle, and worst of all for Liverpool, Kolo Toure "overstretched his groin" according to Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool beat Notts County 4-2 in extra time yesterday, but losing Allen, Cissokho, and especially Toure will be a blow ahead of their big match against Manchester United this weekend.
