boss Steven Gerrard has confirmed that defender Filip Helander has undergone knee surgery and will be sidelined for several weeks.

Helander suffered an injury during his side's 2-1 win over St Johnston and could not play until the end of the game. He will now miss the Europa League match against Lyon, and Gerrard predicts he will be out of action for several weeks.

"Helander will be missing,"

Gerrard said at.

"He has had surgery in the last 24-48 hours to fix an issue that they spotted when they went inside to have a look so he will be missing for the foreseeable future.

"The rest is as it was so we are in good health besides Fil.

I've not had a chance to speak to Fil post-surgery but I will do as soon as possible to see how he is mentally and physically.

"It is difficult to put a time on his return for now but will be at least a few months."
