Liverpool draw 1-1 with Atletico Madrid

Liverpool drew 1-1 away to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last night thanks to a Robbie Keane goal on fourteen minutes. But the point came at a high cost with the Irish striker, Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso all picking up injuries ahead of Sunday's crucial league game against Chelsea.

It's still not clear the extent of the injuries, but Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is hoping that none of the three will be out for long with the Reds joint top of the Premier League with on twenty points with Luis Felipe Scolari's Chelsea.

Simao Sabrosa earned a point for the Madrid side after some uncharacteristically sloppy defending from Jamie Carragher. Liverpool were former Atletico hitman Fernando Torres through injury, but it was their back four which looked to be the real problem on the night.
