Gerrard, Torres & Johnson injury updates

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is still unsure whether he’ll have the services of three key players for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United at Anfield.

As the Reds go looking to end their run of four consecutive defeats, there are doubts over the availability of Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and Glen Johnson.

Torres and Johnson missed Tuesday’s 2-1 Champions League defeat to Lyon, whilst Gerrard limped off during the first half.

Speaking to the press ahead of this Sunday’s showdown fixture, Benitez said, “It’s the same situation for all the players.Fernando trained today and has been working to a specific programme.

“We will speak with the physios over the weekend before making a decision about Steven.

“Hopefully Glen will be available but we’ll have to wait and see. We will make late decisions with all of them.”

Liverpool vs Manchester Utd gets underway at 2pm this Sunday, 25th October and is live on Sky Sports.

Update: Johnson and Torres passed fit, Gerrard not fit to start but may be on the bench.
