Rafa confirms Gerrard's injury concerns

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has admitted Steven Gerrard is struggling to recover from his groin injury.

Gerrard has missed Liverpool's last two games with the problem initially picked up on international duty with England earlier this month.

The Reds skipper is likely to be again missing for Saturday's trip to Fulham amid fears he could need surgery to solve the problem.

Better news on the injury front for Benitez is that Fernando Torres is likely to face Fulham despite struggling with a similar problem to Gerrard.

"Both have to keep going," said Benitez. "Gerrard is still working with the physio so we will see.

"Hopefully, Torres will be okay, but for Gerrard maybe it more difficult."
