Gerrard out until September, at least

Steven Gerrard was ruled out until September due to an infection related to his groin injury.

Liverpool's captain has not played since the 3-1 win over Manchester United at Anfield on 6 March, but had been expected to recover in time for the club's first Premier League game. However, the club have revealed that Gerrard is now undergoing a course of antibiotic treatment in hospital, where he will remain "for several days".

Gerrard will miss at least three Premier League matches – against Sunderland, Arsenal and Bolton Wanderers – plus England's friendly against Holland on 10 August.
I hate to beat a dead horse, but that only leaves Miereles, Lucas, Henderson, Aquilani, Sheveley, Spearing and Poulsen competing for two spots. King Kenny is going to have to earn his crown this season.

    I think Adam will start then. I think Adam will start then.

  3. Signed Adam before his price went up, so am very happy with this news.

  4. I think it actually makes King Kenny's job easier. Liverpool, IMO, played better without Gerrard last season. Miereles was a revelation and Lucas played his best season too.
    So I think it is better for liverpool that Gerrard is out.
