Kenny Dalglish has revealed that Steven Gerrard is recovering well from his ankle injury, and the skipper should be back in action for the Reds soon.

Both Gerrard and Jamie Carragher were not selected for Liverpool’s trip to West Brom last weekend, and while the initial diagnoses were positive, for Gerrard an infection was found that is likely to keep him out of action for up to a month.

But Dalglish is still adamant that Gerrard’s injury is not anywhere near as bad as his pervious ones, and hopes that the England international will be back in action within weeks.

"Since they found the infection, Steven has really been progressing extremely well. Everything is positive for him,” Dalglish said.

"They found the infection and I suppose it's a wee bit like flu - you know you've got it, but you don't know where it came from.

"But they are treating and it is responding really well, so it's positive for him. It is nothing more sinister."

Dalglish also revealed that Carragher could be selected for Liverpool’s clash with Swansea on Saturday, with the Reds desperate for a win as they prepare for back-to-back matches with Chelsea and Manchester City.

"We'll check on Carra for Saturday and see how he is. If he's not going to be right, he is not going to be right,” he explained.

"As a football club, we're much better with those two [Carragher and Gerrard] fit. They've been fantastic servants to the club and will continue to be fantastic servants.

"It was a great achievement for the boys to get a result at West Brom without either of those two playing, but I am sure they'll not be far away from playing.

"Everybody [else] seems to be fine. Nothing new has cropped up, thankfully."
