Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has revealed that captain Steven Gerrard is a doubt for his side´s Champions League semi-final first-leg tie with Chelsea on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old midfielder missed the Reds 2-0 Barclays Premier League win over Fulham with a neck injury and Benitez is unsure if he will be fit to face the Blues at Anfield.

Benitez said: "I was talking with the physios today (Saturday) and he [Gerrard] is improving but it is still too soon [to say if he will be fit for Chelsea]."
