Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has played down Joe Cole's injury after the playmaker was substituted during the Reds' 1-0 Europa League third qualifying round victory over Gomel.
The former Chelsea midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Lille, lasted just 23 minutes before he was replaced by 17-year-old Raheem Sterling at the Central Stadion in Belarus.
Joe just felt his hamstring a little bit,' Rodgers said. 'I don't think it is totally pulled and it was just a little bit of tightness so we had to take him off.
It disrupted our plans a little bit but it was better to have him come off rather than risk injury.'
