Toure scored a terrible own goal in Liverpool's 3-2 victory over Fulham on Wednesday.

Toure was bailed out by his attacking teammates, Wednesday, after starting the day with a comical own goal. Toure has had a bad run of performances lately, and will likely find his way to the bench as soon as Daniel Agger (calf) and Mamadou Sakho (knee) return from injuries over the next few weeks.

Toure assisted on Daniel Sturridge's 35th minute goal in Liverpool's 4-0 victory over Everton on Tuesday.

Toure has been in and out of a tumultuous back line for Liverpool this season. The Ivorian doesn't get onto the score sheet often, and The Reds don't keep enough clean sheets to warrant much fantasy consideration in anything other than the deepest of formats.

Toure (hip) was available off the bench for last Saturday's match against Norwich but he did not make an appearance.

Toure picked up a slight hip injury during last Wednesday's match against Norwich, which may have caused his inactive status over the weekend.

Toure picked up a hip injury in Sunday's match against Hull, and is due to be evaluated before Wednesday's match against Norwich, reports Goal.com.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers is hopeful that the injury is a minor one and that the defender will be available to play on Wednesday.

Toure recorded his first assist for Liverpool in the Reds' 4-1 win over West Bromwich on Saturday.

Toure has looked good in defense this season for Liverpool despite their shaky back line. Toure and the rest of the Reds defense will have a tough time next week versus a high-powered Arsenal attack.

Toure (groin) could return to the pitch for Monday's match against Swansea, Goal.com reports.

There is plenty of competition for playing time at Liverpool, so even if Toure is fit, he may start the match on the bench. Either way, it'll be good to have him back after missing a few weeks with his groin injury.

Toure suffered a groin injury during Tuesday's 4-2 Capital One Cup win over Notts County, the Daily Mail reports. Manager Brendan Rodgers said that Toure "overstretched his groin, so we need to assess that, which doesn't look so good to be honest."

Toure was stretchered off and Liverpool were forced to play with only 10 men, as they had already used their three substitutions. His availability for Sunday's match against Manchester United looks doubtful.

Toure has officially signed with Liverpool after a free transfer from Manchester City.

Toure agreed to his new contract with Liverpool at the end of May but needed to wait until the transfer window opened on July 1 to make it official. The 32-year old will likely get more time on the pitch at Anfield than he got with Man City.
