Balotelli suffered a gash on his foot during Liverpool's loss at Hull City on Tuesday, Sky Sports reports.

Balotelli got the start in place of the injured Daniel Sturridge (hip), and if he is unable to play Saturday against QPR, Rickie Lambert or Fabio Borini could get the start in his place, or manager Brendan Rodgers could go with midfielder Raheem Sterling up front.

Balotelli started up front against West Brom on Saturday and took five shots off goal before exiting in the 75th minute.

Balotelli got the start with Daniel Sturridge (hip) off the pitch Saturday and made the most of his time on the playing field with an impressive five shots. However, he's been a fixture off the bench this season and that may ultimately be his fate for Tuesday's match against Hull City.

Balotelli is in the starting lineup Saturday against West Brom.

With Daniel Sturridge still sidelined with a hip injury, Balotelli will get a rare start, his first since Premier League play since November.

Balotelli (illness) was subbed onto the pitch for the second half of Sunday's 1-2 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in the FA Cup semifinal.

Balotelli was dealing with an illness ahead of Sunday's match but ultimately returned to the pitch for the first time since Mar. 22. He's in line to be available yet again for Saturday's Premiere League bout against West Brom, although manager Brendan Rodgers has a propensity to leave the Italian on the bench in Premier League contents.

Balotelli is expected to be available for Sunday's FA Cup match against Aston Villa after recovering from a illness, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Balotelli has dealt with a number of nagging issues of late, and he may even be able to feature Sunday if Daniel Sturridge is unable to recover from his hip injury.

Balotelli's (illness) availability for Monday's match against Newcastle is uncertain, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Balotelli missed the match against Arsenal with a knock but is now dealing with an illness and will have a late-fitness test ahead of Monday's tilt. That said, it might be wise to explore other options in the event that he's ruled out shortly before the match starts.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers revealed that Balotelli withdrew himself from the squad to face Arsenal after a small knock in training, reports the Daily Mail.

Balotelli was only intended to be a substitute in the match, and did not travel with the squad to the match after picking up the knock on Friday.
