The Liverpool football club manager Rafael Benitez has confirmed his injured captain Steven Gerrard is closer to being fit for Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final decider at Chelsea.

Gerrard was rested for Liverpool's 4-nil Premier League victory over Blackburn Rovers on the weekend after a recurrence of his groin injury.

Liverpool are 3-1 down after the first leg at Anfield but Benitez is hopeful the Reds' talismanic captain can return.

And Benitez is confident his side can turn things around in the second leg at Stamford Bridge, he also took a cheeky dig at Chelsea conceding 3 late goals in their 4-3 win over Bolton Wanderers...

Rafael Benitez says Steven Gerrard will have one more day of training today then they will see how he feels.
