Unconfirmed reports today have suggested that Liverpool Captain Steven Gerrard is recovered from his mysterious ankle infection and will be available for selection in under two weeks.
He has been pictured on Lfc.tv this week running with his team-mates as he looks to get over a very bleak year for him in the red of Liverpool.
He is now expected to feature in Liverpool’s final fixture of 2011 against Newcastle United on December 30, which will end his injury-plagued year on something of a positive note.
This will be very good news for every Liverpool supporter as our talisman has been sorely missed for most of 2011 through injury.
Add in the loss of Lucas for the rest of the Season and its easy to see that now is the perfect time for Stevie G to return to the starting eleven.
We have missed his tough tackling in midfield, his surging runs into the box, his spectular goals, but most of all his influence in the team, he single handedly drives Liverpool forward time after time, even when the team looks lost he is the man who takes the game by the scruff-of-the-neck and wins the game for Liverpool.
Come back soon Steven Gerrard.
