Alonso could be back for Reds

Published Add your comment

Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso could return against Chelsea in the Carling Cup quarter-final match on Wednesday following a ten-match absence with a metatarsal injury.

Alonso has made a full recovery after being sidelined since the 1-1 draw with Arsenal in October, and manager Rafael Benitez told "Xabi is training normally and should be available for the match at Chelsea.

"We are going into a busy period with lots of games so it is important to have our best players available."
