Allen Could Return In 2-3 Weeks Says Sousa

Paulo Sousa says Joe Allen's injury is not as bad as first thought and he could be back within 2-3 weeks.

The 19 year-old midfielder suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury on Saturday at Leicester City and he limped off during the first half.

The 38 year-old boss praised the Welsh international and said that we struggled to control the match after he left the field. It was a key moment Sousa said when Allen went off as the home side took advantage and completely dominated the second half.

Luckily though, the injury isn't too bad confirmed Sousa, he told the Official site:

'The injury doesn't seem so bad,''

'He has had a good reaction since Saturday and it may only take him two to three weeks to recover.''


After our opening day defeat, Sousa wants to see his side bounce back tomorrow night with a win in the Carling Cup first round at home to League One side Brighton & Hove Albion.

He added:

'All competitions are important, especially after a defeat,''

'It's important to win and regain our confidence by playing good football.

'It was a little bit frustrating at Leicester, especially after all we've been working on in training and what I know my players are capable of.

'But that's now in the past and we have to find a different ways to achieve success.

'I am expecting a tough game and we will need to be at our best. If not then it will always be difficult to win the game.

'We need to be prepared and focussed 100 per cent to win games. This is what I want and expect from my players.''
