Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard having scan on hamstring injury

According to BBC Sport, Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard will have a scan on his hamstring today, after suffering an injury in their 3-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur this week.

The former England international came off in the 3-2 win against Tottenham, and is now a doubt for the Reds’ FA Cup clash on the weekend. The 34-year-old is injured at the worst time for manager Brendan Rodgers, who has utilised the veteran midfielder a lot this season, and will be in desperate need for him during a run of tough fixtures in three separate competitions.

Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe revealed the long-serving captain felt pain in his hamstring following the Tottenham win, but the club will be awaiting the results. They are still hoping it’s nothing too serious, given they also lost Lucas in the same game. They cannot give a time frame until they have a clear indication of the level of damage to Gerrard’s hamstring, but Rodgers will now be mindful not to push him back too soon, as he remains a key player in the side.
