Liverpool star Crouch breaks nose
Peter Crouch receives treatment for his head injury
Crouch was caught by Rob Hulse's boot
Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has confirmed that Peter Crouch broke his nose on Saturday.

The England striker was carried out of Liverpool's 4-0 victory after being accidentally kicked in the face by Blades striker Rob Hulse.

Benitez told Liverpool's website: "Crouch has a broken nose and needed stitches but it's not serious, he's OK and I spoke to him after the game."

Goalkeeper Jose Reina missed the game because his wife gave birth.

Crouch also suffered a cut head as Hulse's boot made contact as the Reds star stooped to head a ball.

Reina's wife Yolanda went into labour with their first child on Friday night and the goalkeeper was at her bedside in hospital.
