Gerrard primed for Reds return

BY foxsports • January 25, 2010

The England international was expected to be sidelined for at least a fortnight after sustaining a hamstring problem in the FA Cup exit to Reading on January 13. However, he returned to action at the club's Melwood training ground over the weekend and could play at Molineux. "He was training on Saturday and then a full training session on Sunday, and today was the same," said manager Rafael Benitez. "Normally he's someone who, if available, can play. "We'll decide tomorrow but I think he can be available." Defenders Fabio Aurelio and Daniel Agger missed Wednesday's win over Tottenham with knocks which may keep them out again but striker Fernando Torres (knee) and midfielder Yossi Benayoun (rib) are still weeks away from fitness. Liverpool (from): Reina, Degen, Skrtel, Carragher, Insua, Aquilani, Gerrard, Lucas, Rodriguez, Riera, Ngog, Kuyt, Cavalieri, Kyrgiakos, Pacheco, Spearing, Darby, Babel, Aurelio, Agger.
