Steven Gerrard will remain sidelined through the weekend and will not be available for Liverpool as they travel to St. Mary's on Sunday to play Southampton.
After missing out entirely on last night's Europa contest against Besiktas, this news comes as little surprise. With Lucas still on the shelf as well, expect Joe Allen to fill again alongside Jordan Henderson for that central defensive midfield partnership against the Saints. With Raheem Sterling looking set to return and Daniel Sturridge back completely, the Reds should still plenty of ways to score, but the captain's leadership will certainly be missed in a big match.

Steven Gerrard is still not ready to return from a hamstring injury he picked up on the 10th of this month as Brendan Rodgers has already ruled him out of contention for tomorrow night's Europa match against Besiktas.

With Gerrard already counted out for Thursday and Liverpool having their next league match Sunday, it is not looking good already for his availability. Had he at least made the bench for tomorrow, it would put him on track for a possible return Sunday, but now he looks a serious doubt. Rodgers will likely shed light on Gerrard's status on Friday.

Steven Gerrard will have a scan on Thursday after aggravating a hamstring problem during the Tuesdays nights’ win over Tottenham at Anfield.

The talismanic midfielder has been struggling recently with hamstring tightness which has been managed carefully by the club; however the Spurs match came just three days after a bruising Merseyside derby and the concern now is that Gerrard has damaged muscle tissue. If confirmed a grade one tear would mean up to three weeks on the sidelines and with Lucas Leiva [groin] expected to miss at least a month plus Raheem Sterling currently receiving treatment for a foot problem Liverpool are a little stretched. Although Rodgers still has options with Joe Allen available and Kolo Toure joining the group again on Monday, but any further injuries and the situation will be a worry given their impending Europa League campaign. Mario Balotelli is hoping his midweek goal will be enough to kick-start his Liverpool career.

Stevem Gerrard played in his thirty-third and possibly his final Merseyside derby today as Liverpool would grab a point at Goodison Park in a 0-0 stalemate.

One would think that it what everyone involved had to be consider this Gerrard's final appearance in this historic matchup, but the game lacked its usual passion and drama. Jordan Ibe came close to scoring one of the finer goals of the season in the first half as he sent a pretty shot that clanked off the corner of the far post. Making just his second start for the senior team, he showed some a bit of flair. The worst news for Pool is that both Lucas and Phillipe Coutinho were forced off early due to knocks and their status becomes instantly in question seeing as their next match is coming Tuesday.

Steven Gerrard was removed from Liverpool's win over Sunderland at halftime due to tightness in the leg.

The extent of the injury is yet unknown but Brendan Rodgers indicated that the decision was a precautionary one, suggesting the Anfield legend will not stay sidelined long, if at all. He assisted the lone goal of the day and the Reds cannot afford to lose him long as their attack looked considerably weaker without him and that was with a man advantage for the most part.

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has confirmed he will join MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy this summer.

As we all know, Steven Gerrard announced last week that he would be moving to America when his existing contract with his boyhood club expires at the end of the current season, and it has now been confirmed that the 34-year-old midfielder will join the LA Galaxy on an 18-month contract in July. Galaxy coach Bruce Arena confirmed the deal, telling the LA Times: "Steven Gerrard arrives in July. He's a player of quality." Galaxy club president Chris Klein added "Steven Gerrard is the perfect fit with what he brings to us on the field and the character that he has off it." Gerrard himself added: "One of the reasons I chose LA Galaxy was because of the success they've had recently. I want to finish my career very strong. I want to add some medals and trophies to my collection."

Steven Gerrard will leave Liverpool at the end of the season and join another club to be named within the next 24 hours.

Gerrard, who scored two penalties in today’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City, has not decided which club he'll continue with just yet, but a move to Major League Soccer is all the buzz right now and several clubs are interested, including LA Galaxy. Liverpool offered Gerrard a new deal in November, but the former England captain has decided the time is right to move on and experience something different.

Leicester City made a huge comeback to earn a point at Anfield in what turned out as a 2-2 draw.

Steven Gerrard hit two penalties to give Liverpool a 2-0 lead but Leicester came back through goals from Jeffrey Schlupp and David Nugent. This was a huge flop from Liverpool, who should have had the game under control but looked weak and deservedly lost their lead. They now sit in eight place and are at big risk of missing out on European competitions next season.

Liverpool's wretched Champions League campaign came to a disappointing conclusion as they failed to beat Basel at Anfield and saw their hopes of reaching the knockout phase evaporate.

This performance summed up Liverpool's season so far. Sloppy in possession and outplayed by Basel, they found themselves deservedly behind after 25 minutes when Fabian Frei hit a fine finish in to the bottom corner of the net. Needing a win to qualify, Brendan Rodgers sprung a surprise at half-time by removing Ricky Lambert - his only striker on the pitch - for Lazar Markovic, who was promptly sent off within 15 minutes of the re-start for swinging an arm. Steven Gerrard did his best Superman impression with a stunning free-kick 10 minutes from time and Liverpool did exert some pressure in the final minutes as they pushed for the required winner, but it ended 1-1, and Europa League football beckons in the new year.

Steven Gerrard looks to have suffered more from a fantasy perspective than any other Liverpool player since the departure of Luis Suarez.

To be fair, Gerrard is getting up there in years and drop off would be expected for that reason alone. Still, there is no denying that the presence of Suarez made Gerrard fantasy relevant after a few years on ice during some non-productive seasons for the Reds. Gerrard averaged 11.5 goals and 13.5 assists the past two seasons and as we approach the 1/3rd point of this campaign, he has but two goals and one assist. His set piece work will always give him a shot at a big haul in any given match, but those opportunities, especially from the penalty spot, have been scaled back because Suarez is not there to create them. At over 15m in the Yahoo game, you are only buying because you happen to have a spare 5-8m just laying around.

Steven Gerrard scored a classic free kick in the 65th minute to give Liverpool the advantage over Everton in the Merseyside Derby, but the Toffees would equalize in the final minutes to leave things at a 1-1 draw.

The Merseyside Derby rarely disappoints and Gerrard's goal today was instant nostalgia. He curled an effort over the wall from just outside the box, but had enough pace on it to dip too quickly out of reach of Tim Howard. It marks Gerrard's 10th goal in his Derby career but Liverpool could not hang on to grab the three points. The Reds were a bit unlucky when a seemingly obvious case of handball by Gareth Barry was not called, but they had other chances that they can only blame themselves for not converting. Gerrard is not going to be the fantasy force he was when Luis Suarez was around, but today was vintage Stevie G.

England have been eliminated from the 2014 World Cup after Costa Rica defeated Italy 1-0.

Costa Rica are guaranteed a spot in the next round while Italy and Uruguay will battle it out for the other spot out of Group D. Italy need a win or a tie against Uruguay to go through while Uruguay obviously need to win to move on. The situation virtually creates an elimination game on Tuesday between Italy and Uruguay that's bound to be entertaining. England have hugely disappointed fans by not even winning a point from their first two games and this is the first time they've been eliminated from the group stages since 1958.

Liverpool's Steven Gerrard has been named England's captain for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Chelsea's Frank Lampard has been named vice-captain. The two midfielders come with a ton of experience and will try to break England's poor international streak. England's captains are 33 and 35 years of age, respectively, and this will most likely be their last attempt at winning a World Cup. Expect a dedicated and inspired performance as we experience the changing of the guard.

Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Glen Johnson will all be headed to Brazil to represent England this summer.

With Liverpool's success in the league comes recognition at the national team level for their key English players. It is possible that as many as all five players will start a match with the smallest number likely being three. If Roy Hodgson really wants to attack it isn't hard to see him going with Johnson on the right, Gerrard and Henderson in the midfield engine room, Sterling wide right and Sturridge partnering Wayne Rooney. It would be a very attacking line-up for sure but even seeing four Liverpool players starting for England at the beginning of the season would have been a pretty remarkable prediction.

Liverpool finished their season with a win over Newcastle 2-1 thanks to goals assisted by Steven Gerrard, but Manchester City secured the title with a win of their own

While the last few weeks were disappointing for Pool fans when they let their fate slip by losing to Chelsea and drawing with Crystal Palace, the overall 2nd place finish is their best in five seasons and they will be playing Champions league football for the first time since then as well. Gerrard was instrumental as he has been for the majority of the season and his career, serving up two free kicks that led to the Reds two goals in the span of two minutes. Daniel Agger scored the first and then Daniel Sturridge followed with his 24th goal of the season. Brendan Rodgers has to be looked at as a positive managerial selection for LFC, but it looks like they need to address their defensive philosophy heading into the 2014/2015 campaign.
