Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has received positive injury news after his players returned fit from international duty.

Martin Kelly is the only player with a new concern, while skipper Steven Gerrard has returned quicker than expected.

However, the Scot will not look to rush the England star back into action too soon despite the speedy recovery.

“I think everybody has come back from international matches okay,” Dalglish told the press.

“Martin Kelly’s picked up an injury when he was trying to recouperate, and Fabio (Aurelio) is almost there as well.”

“Steven has recovered really well from the surgery he got, and we’ll decide whether he’s going to be in or out.”

“He’s done a lot of training this week, not all of it, but we’ll wait and see. Jay (Spearing) played well against Sunderland so there is no rush to get him back.”


Liverpool have been handed a further piece of positive injury news, with Luis Suarez declared fit for the clash at the Hawthorns.

The Uruguayan international was a potential doubt for the Merseysiders, but ‘King Kenny’ also confirmed that the forward would be fit for the trip to the Midlands.

“Luis is fine. He trained yesterday morning and is ready,” the boss confirmed.
