Rafa tips Gerrard to tackle Blues

Rafael Benitez expects Steven Gerrard to be fit for the first leg of Liverpool's Champions League clash with Chelsea on Wednesday night. Gerrard was replaced in injury-time during the Reds' last-gasp win over Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday. The England midfielder was suffering from a tight groin and his late substitution placed a question mark over his availability for the quarter-final, first leg. However, Benitez is optimistic the injury will not be serious enough to keep his captain out of Chelsea's vist to Anfield. "Steven had some problems, but I think he will be okay for Wednesday," said Benitez. "He was a little bit tired and he felt something a bit tight. We will see."
