Liverpool Injury Update

Liverpool could welcome back captain Steven Gerrard for their New Year’s Day English Premier League match against Hull City at Anfield.

Gerrard has been on the sidelines since early December when he suffered a hamstring injury in his side’s 4-1 win over West Ham.

The Reds manager Brendan Rodgers, though, has confirmed that he may be back for their first clash of 2014.

He has also provided a ‘good news’ update on the likes of Jordan Henderson who suffered a slight knock in their last game against Chelsea.

Unfortunately, though, for Liverpool Joe Allen (abductor) and Mamadou Sakho (hamstring) will not be involved in the match against Hull City.

“Joe will probably be out for a few weeks with an abductor strain,” said Rodgers.

“Sakho, we're just waiting for confirmation on his hamstring strain. Glen Johnson came off at Chelsea, but that was tactical and wasn't injury enforced.

“There were one or two other niggles that we'll just assess in the next 24 hours.

“Steven has joined back in training, so we'll see how he is for Hull, and I would think that probably by the Stoke game on 12 January, we'll have a number of the others who'll not be too far away.

“But certainly for the Hull game we'll have to rely on more or less what we had.

“Jordan Henderson is fine. He's on his first day of recovery today. He's still sore, but he's a real solider and should be fine.”
