Liverpool ready to risk Gerrard

LIVERPOOL manager Rafael Benitez said he could risk injured captain Steven Gerrard for today's Champions League quarterfinal, second leg at Chelsea.

Gerrard sat out Liverpool's 4-0 Premier League victory over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday with a groin injury but Benitez is hopeful he can return as Liverpool attempts to overturn a 3-1 deficit at Stamford Bridge. "He is better but he is still working with the physios," Benitez said. "He will have one more day of training and then after we will see how he feels. It makes a difference if we play with him. Clearly we need him, he is a key player for us."
