Dalglish hoping for Gerrard recovery

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is awaiting an update on captain Steven Gerrard’s fitness ahead of tomorrow’s visit of Arsenal.

The midfielder injured a hamstring in England’s friendly defeat against Holland on Wednesday while defender Glen Johnson is expected to be fit after pulling out of the national squad on Monday as a precaution.

Centre-back Daniel Agger is likely to miss the next couple of weeks with a cracked rib, meaning Jamie Carragher is likely to get a recall.

Provisional squad: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique, Adam, Gerrard, Henderson, Bellamy, Suarez, Carroll, Doni, Kelly, Coates, Spearing, Shelvey, Downing, Rodriguez, Kuyt.
