Gerrard set for return for Liverpool
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard could make his return to action
against Hull in the Premier League on Wednesday after almost a
month out with a hamstring injury.
Gerrard is back in full training and Liverpool manager Brendan
Rodgers said Monday that he will assess the midfielder’s fitness
being deciding whether to recall him for the match at Anfield.
Gerrard’s return is a major boost to Rodgers, who saw midfielder
Joe Allen and center back Mamadou Sakho come off in the 2-1 loss at
Chelsea on Sunday to join an injury list that already includes
striker Daniel Sturridge and fullbacks Jon Flanagan and Jose
Liverpool was top of the Premier League on Christmas Day but has
slipped to fifth after losing to Manchester City and Chelsea.
