The 24-year-old striker came on for the last half hour of the 2-0 defeat by Chelsea at Anfield last Sunday.

"We'll see over the next 48 hours," Reds boss Rodgers told his club's official website on Friday.

"He hadn't trained since he got injured in the game against Manchester City, so it was a bit much against Chelsea.

"He had worked really hard to get back and we needed something on the bench that could support us and help us in the game but unfortunately, it wasn't to be.

"But he's certainly in a much better place. He's worked tirelessly this week with the medical team. He re-joins the group and we'll see how he is come Monday."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
