Brendan Rodgers: Steven Gerrard to probably start Bolton game


Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says midfielder Steven Gerrard is fit to feature against Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup.

The 34-year-old was not in the squad to face West Ham United on Saturday after suffering a hamstring injury with the Northern Irishman explaining after the 2-0 win that the decision was a precautionary one.

But the Englishman is expected to be in the starting line-up when the Reds take on Bolton Wanderers in tomorrow's FA Cup fourth-round replay.

"Yes, he's [Steven Gerrard is] fine," Rodgers said on Monday.

"He trained great this morning [on Tuesday]. I've got to look at the risk as well, and how tight his hamstring was after the game. It was 120 minutes.

"We measure the recovery process and look at that. If it's too much of a risk we feel, like you saw on Saturday we have got other players to come in and we can just manage that recovery process for him individually.

"Then it allows him to maybe miss the game, have a bridging session - like he did yesterday and came into the session today and was outstanding, with no ill effects - and then prepares him for the game on Wednesday, if selected."
