Liverpool have confirmed Steven Gerrard has been ruled out of Saturday's make-or-break Premier League clash with Hull at the KC Stadium.Gerrard is still struggling with the groin injury which has ruled him out since the first leg of the Champions League defeat to Chelsea earlier this month.The midfielder was an unused substitute in the 4-0 win over Blackburn and failed to figure in the two 4-4 draws with Chelsea and Arsenal.Reds boss Rafa Benitez has admitted the trip to Hull has come too early for Gerrard, but is confident the England international will be back for the home clash with Newcastle on May 3."He is not fit and won't be available. I think he will be available next week because he's improving, but this game is too soon," Benitez told the club's official website."The rest of the team is available - we have a full squad."Reds (from): Reina, Arbeloa, Carragher, Hyypia, Agger, Skrtel, Dossena, Aurelio, Insua, Benayoun, Riera, Mascherano, Alonso, Lucas, Kuyt, Torres, Ngog, El Zhar, Cavalieri.
