Injury Update: Miereles Simply Sick

Roy Hodgson has explained his decision to swap Raul Meireles with Jonjo Shelvey, declaring that the Portuguese international was sick. Hodgson made some odd substitutions tonight, although Meireles for Shelvey wasn't the most puzzling (Poulsen on for Kuyt when we were drawing 1-1!), and after the game the Liverpool boss confirmed: "He was sick. I don't know how long it will take for him to recover. He felt ill just before the game in the warm up. He wanted to play and got through the first half but at half-time he was sick again, so there was no option." Liverpool fans are still waiting to hear why Poulsen was let near the stadium, never mind brought on for Kuyt!
