The news coming out of Melwood today (Thursday) is not too bad on the injury front. There had been suggestions that Steven Gerrard could be out injured until December with his latest ankle injury infection but Kenny Dalglish has said that Gerrard is making good progress.
Dalglish said, “Since they found the infection, Steven has really been progressing extremely well. Everything is positive for him.
“They found the infection and I suppose it’s a wee bit like flu – you know you’ve got it, but you don’t know where it came from.
“But they are treating and it is responding really well, so it’s positive for him. It is nothing more sinister.”
Whilst Jamie Carragher still continues to struggle with his calf injury, he is touch and go to be fit for the game this weekend against Swansea.
The boss said, “We’ll check on Carra for Saturday and see how he is. If he’s not going to be right, he is not going to be right.
“As a football club, we’re much better with those two (Carragher and Gerrard) fit. They’ve been fantastic servants to the club and will continue to be fantastic servants.
“It was a great achievement for the boys to get a result at West Brom without either of those two playing, but I am sure they’ll not be far away from playing.
“Everybody (else) seems to be fine. Nothing new has cropped up, thankfully.”
