Riera and Benayoun can be available after speacial treatment

Yossi Benayoun and Albert Riera could be in line for a shock return to action this weekend after responding to radical treatment on their torn hamstrings.

The Liverpool midfielders were flown to Belgrade earlier this week to see Mariana Kovacevic, the physiotherapist who has become famous for curing injured sportsmen with liquid from horse placenta.

Both men were expected to be sidelined for between three to five weeks after they sustained the injuries against Birmingham last Monday.

But their condition has improved so much since seeing Kovacevic there is an outside chance of them being available for Saturday’s home clash with Manchester City.

Benayoun has been in outstanding form this season and he is quietly confident he will be back in action sooner rather than later.

“I have been in Belgrade to see her and I am feeling better already,” Benayoun confirmed. “My hope now is that I will be fit in one week, two at the most. I have a good feeling about it.”

If either of Benayoun or Riera were available after their special treatment it would be another huge boost for Rafa Benitez, who is getting close to having his strongest team available for the first time this season.
