Steven Gerrard fit to face Marseille for the UEFA Champions League
Liverpool super star Steven Gerrard is available to play against Olympique Marseille in their Champions League Group D game after recovering from a groin injury, manager Rafa Benitez said on Tuesday.
Speaking ahead of Wednesday's match at Anfield, Benitez told the club's website: "He (Gerrard) was training and is available. And I think that he could start and I think he could play 90 minutes, but in the end that depends on the player during the game."
The popular Gerrard tore the adductor magnus muscle in his right leg against Bolton Wanderers in the Premier League on November 15.
As we know, the midfielder missed England's 2-1 victory over Germany last week and Liverpool's game at home to Fulham on Saturday.
Liverpool Football Club, who suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by Marseille at the same stage last season, are second in Group D and victory at Anfield would put them through to the last 16.
