Liverpool's Christian Benteke to undergo scan after hamstring injury

Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is set to undergo scan after sustaining a hamstring injury during their 1-1 draw to Norwich City on Sunday, first team coach Gary McAllister has said.

The Belgium international, who was withdrawn at half-time against the Canaries due to tightness in his hamstring, has scored two goals for the club.

McAllister also confirmed captain Jordan Henderson had a successful operation on his broken metatarsal.

"Christian will have an MRI scan today and hopefully they`ll find the problem -- he`s got a little problem with his hamstring," McAllister told reporters ahead of their third round League Cup tie with Carlisle United.

"Everybody (else) is good. Jordan`s come through fine. There`s not really a timescale on that, but everything went well there," he added.
