Anfield skipper on the mend.
Steven Gerrard has targeted Liverpool’s trip to Tottenham to make his comeback from a groin injury.
Gerrard has been sidelined since undergoing surgery in March, and has only played in six games since Kenny Dalglish’s arrival at Anfield in January.
He is preparing to return to full training next week and has set his sights on the Reds’ trip to White Hart Lane on September 18 to make his comeback.
“I feel really good and I’m back kicking balls again – it’s all positive,” Gerrard told Liverpool’s website. “I should be back in full training with the team on Thursday or Friday of next week.
“I won’t be involved against Stoke next Saturday but my plan is to hopefully be involved in the game against Tottenham. It will be Kenny’s decision when I come back in.”
Steven Gerrard has struggled for sometime with a troubling groin injury, indeed the England man has not played a competitive match for Liverpool since March and to be fair to the Anfield side it doesn’t look like the club’s mercurial skipper has been missed.
Liverpool have won seven of the 12 games this season and last since Gerrard last played and lost just three, that said it’s fairly clear that a player as talented as the 31 year old midfielder will go straight back into the starting eleven, but at who’s cost?
It seems likely that either Jordan Henderson or Charlie Adam would make way for Gerrard, which would be harsh given both have started so well since their summer move to Merseyside.
