Gerrard and Johnson back for Liverpool
Liverpool have received a double boost after captain Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson returned to training ahead of Saturday’s trip to Sunderland.
The duo missed Liverpool’s last match, a 2-1 defeat at home to Arsenal, but manager Kenny Dalglish is confident the pair will be available for selection this weekend.
"Steven and Glen are back in training today, so we'll see how they are," said Dalglish. "It’s a good boost for us to have anybody back, Steven included. Having Glen back as well, who was doing fantastic, will be good for us.
"We'll see how they do in training and judge it from there."
