Liverpool sweat over Gerrard injury

Last Updated: Mon, 04 Nov 2013 09:52

Liverpool face an anxious wait to see how skipper Steven Gerrard is ahead of the clash with Fulham after he picked up a hip injury.

The Reds skipper suffered a knock to his hip in the defeat to Arsenal on Saturday evening and will be assessed this week to see if he will be ready for the clash with Martin Jol's men next weekend.

Boss Brendan Rodgers is hopeful Gerrard will be able to shrug off the minor hip complaint and handle the fixture load, with the Merseyside derby looming following the Fulham clash.

Rodgers said: "He took a knock towards the end, with his hip. I'm not sure the complete diagnosis on it.

"Stevie's been brilliant for me, it was a tough game for him, but we'll assess his injury and see where he's at."
