Gerrard and Drogba set to play at Anfield

9:46 am on 8 April 2009

The Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard and Chelsea striker Didier Drogba are set to play in the Champions League quarter-final at Anfield tomorrow morning after recovering from injury.

Gerrard slightly injured his groin in Liverpool's 1-nil win over Fulham on Sunday but came through a training session today unscathed.

Liverpool, however, will be without the suspended Javier Mascherano after the Argentina international midfielder was booked in the second leg of Liverpool's 4-nil win over Real Madrid a month ago.

Chelsea, who are meeting Liverpool in the Champions League for the fifth successive season, should have Drogba leading their attack after he came through two training sessions today.

Drogba didn't play in Sunday's 2-nil win at Newcastle United because of an ankle injury.

Chelsea's Portuguese defender Jose Bosingwa, who damaged a hamstring while on international duty last week, is out of the match.
