Jon Flanagan underwent surgery on his troubled knee, keeping the young full back out of action for six months or more.
Really tough news for the kid. This will be his third operation on the same knee in the past three years and he went through extensive rehabilitation to come back from the previous problem, having returned to training back in March. Now the latest timetable does not see him returning to any kind of action until well into the 2015/2016 season and you have to imagine he will be handled like a faberge egg at that time.

Jon Flanagan has been ruled out of Liverpool's opener against Southampton, joining a list of names which includes Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Daniel Agger.

With so many new toys at fullback for Liverpool, the absence of Flanagan should only help make Brendan Rodgers selection easier. Agger is trying to get back to fitness before the window closes as it appears his days of starting at Anfield are over. We will have to wait another few weeks to get a look at Lallana but Markovic hopes to be in contention as early as Week Two.

Jon Flanagan will miss his second match of the week with a hamstring injury.

Aly Cissokho deputized for the youngster against Manchester City, and will have to do so again at Chelsea.

Liverpool starlet, Jon Flanagan, is a doubt for the trip to Manchester City with a tight hamstring. Flanagan played through the issue against Cardiff City and could be asked to do the same on Boxing Day.

If Flanagan can't go against Manchester City, Liverpool's options are pretty thin. They could move Glen Johnson to the left and play Jordan Henderson on the right - possibly even as wing backs with a three-man defence. It would be a shame, however, to move Henderson from the attacking midfield role he's played so well over the last few weeks. Martin Kelly is another option, but he's just coming back from his own long-term injury.

Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers, has praised defender Jon Flanagan after the youngster's debut goal against Spurs. "So I've said to him, 'just play every game as if you haven't cracked it, go out and be the best you can be', and that's what he's done."

The right-footed Flanagan has made the left-back spot his own after Aly Cissokho couldn't do the same, and Jose Enrique suffered a long-term injury. The Liverpool defence still isn't what it should be, but when Luis Suarez is knocking in goals for fun, and the likes of Flanagan can chip in on occassion, they won't need to keep many clean sheets to keep winning.
