Liverpool have confirmed Steven Gerrard will miss the Barclays Premier League match with Arsenal on Tuesday after being ruled out for at least one more week with an adductor injury.
The Liverpool skipper aggravated the problem ahead of the the Champions League encounter with Chelsea on Tuesday, forcing him to sit out the second-leg clash at Stamford Bridge which saw the Blues progress with a 7-5 aggregate win.
“In the training session before the Champions League game at Chelsea, Steven Gerrard unfortunately aggravated a small strain he had previously suffered in his adductor muscle,” a Liverpool spokesman confirmed today.
“A scan has since confirmed our medical team’s initial diagnosis and the player is expected to be out for between seven and 10 days.
“In the meantime, Steven will continue to receive intensive treatment on the injury at Melwood.”
