Reds expect Gerrard return
29 Apr 2009 - 15:26:32
Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard will make his return from injury in Sunday's Premier League clash with Newcastle United at Anfield.
Gerrard has missed the last four games with a groin injury but stepped up his training this week and manager Rafael Benitez expects him to be fit for the visit of the struggling Magpies.
He told the club's official website: "Steven is doing well and is training with the rest of the team. I think he will be fit and available for Sunday.
"It is good news for the team and for him because he can be a key player for us over the remaining games.
"Without Steven the squad has been playing well and scoring goals, so that is positive."
Meanwhile, Benitez has played down reports that he is considering selling a number of fringe members of his squad at the end of the season.
The Spaniard admitted earlier in the week that he would have to sell before he can buy in the summer.
"I was reading the press and they are talking about different players," he added.
"I can guarantee today that we are not thinking about selling anyone. All we are thinking about is to do our job and to try and win the Premier League title, if possible.
"After that you never know what can happen in the market. Clearly, at this moment, we are just preparing for winning games."
