Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has set his sights on a return to action in the Merseyside derby.

The England international midfielder has been out of action for six months with a groin injury, suffering an infection setback last month after a previously successful operation.

After a return to first team training last week, Gerrard is now targeting the clash against Everton in three weeks time, but knows he will have to fight for his place after a number of impressive performances from the club's summer aquisitions.

"We're looking stronger," said Gerrard.

"The competition in each position is fantastic. We've near enough got two top players in each position, so there is going to be a big fight on for places."

Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson have both made sterling starts to their careers at Anfield, although were helpless to prevent a 1-0 defeat at Stoke City yesterday.

The Reds went down to a Jonathan Waters penalty, although manager Kenny Dalglish felt hard-done by with a number of decisions that didn't go the way of his team.
