Steven Gerrard: Set for operation this summer

The Reds skipper, who has played every minute of Liverpool's Premier League campaign this season, has been carrying the injury for some time according to first-team coach Mike Marsh.

"It's looking more and more likely that he might require surgery," Marsh told the club's website.

"He has been playing with a shoulder injury for quite a while now. We'll try to find the right time for him to get it fixed properly.

"It's not ideal timing, it's going to take quite a while for him to heal. It's a funny injury - it's pretty similar to Joe Allen.

"If it needs repairing, it needs repairing and when he's back fit, he's back fit. There's not much we can do about it."
