Liverpool anxious on Gerrard news

Liverpool will learn the extent of Steven Gerrard‘s latest injury setback on Monday, amid fears the Reds captain will miss the rest of the season.

Gerrard has been sidelined with a groin injury since Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United last month and had hoped to play in Saturday’s Premier League trip to West Brom.

However, manager Kenny Dalglish revealed that the midfielder incurred an injury setback on Friday, and will undergo tests shortly.

“Steven was training yesterday, ready to be available for today. Then he innocuously tried to turn with the ball, and he felt a sharp pain,” said Dalglish.

“It is the same area of his groin but not the same thing. We will get him assessed and at the end of the week we will know better.”
