Liverpool sweat on Steven Gerrard after midfielder injured a hamstring in England’s friendly against Holland.
But his manager, Kenny Dalglish was refusing to speculate on the severity of the problem during his pre-match press conference, until he had been looked over by the club’s medical staff.
Dalglish will be desperately hoping for a positive update, so his skipper can play against the Gunners as the Reds look to keep alive their slim hopes of a top four finish.
Meanwhile, Liverpool should have Glen Johnson to call on for the clash with Arsene Wenger’s men despite the defender’s withdrawal from the England squad this week as a precaution.
However, Dalglish won’t have centre-back Daniel Agger as he is facing a couple of weeks on the sidelines with a cracked rib which will result in a recall for veteran Jamie Carragher.
