Gerrard and Torres major doubts for Sunderland clash

Liverpool could be without both Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres for this Saturday’s Premier League clash against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Both players picked up injuries whilst on international duty for the countries and did not train with the squad at Melwood today (Thursday).

With some important games against Lyon and Manchester Utd ahead, Reds boss Rafa Benitez may not want to risk playing Gerrard and Torres in this Saturday’s 3pm kick-off.

A statement released by the club today said, “Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres will not train with the rest of the squad today, but will continue to receive treatment and will be assessed again tomorrow.”
