Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is set to make his long-awaited return to first-team action in next week's Carling Cup trip to Brighton, reports the Liverpool Echo.

The 31-year-old midfielder has been out of action since March, having been plagued by persistent groin problems, resulting in a prolonged spell on the sidelines.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is keen to welcome Gerrard back in to the senior fold, but is adamant he will not be rushed into action, as he completes the final stages of his rehabilitation.


Recent reports had suggested that the England international could feature for Liverpool in the weekend's trip to Tottenham, but the Echo insist Gerrard will play no part in the Barclays Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.

Gerrard missed out on the Reds' entire pre-season campaign, hence why it has taken him so long to get up to speed in terms of fitness. But the Liverpool skipper now has his sights set on a return to action, in what could prove to be his first appearance in almost six months.
