Steven Gerrard's inexplicable red card and resulting ban should give Joe Allen a few more starts, with Lucas a potential option as well now that he is fit.
When Brendan Rodgers has no injuries or suspensions to deal with, he would have a weekly selection dilemma with four seasoned PL players battling it out for two positions in central midfield. However, things have worked out where he rarely has all four available. One spot is certainly locked up now and perhaps for seasons to come by Jordan Henderson. With Gerrard suspended for the next three and leaving Anfield at season's end, the other spot is down to Allen and Lucas with the former having the slight edge at the moment. Neither are appealing in fantasy however. Mar 25 - 7:45 PM

Liverpool have been handed a triple injury boost ahead of the Swansea City game as Joe Allen [hip], Steven Gerrard [hamstring] and Martin Skrtel [neck] are all expected to return in GW29.

Allen was a late withdrawal last weekend following a training ground injury but the club have confirmed his hip injury is only minor and the Welsh international will be available to face his former employers. Gerrard however has spent over a month out and is not expected to walk back into the team given the form of Vice-captain Jordan Henderson who has grown in statue this term. Martin Skrtel was also given the all-clear after an awkward landing against Blackburn in the cup left the defender slightly concussed. Mamadou Sakho played 45 minutes for the under-21 side on Monday while Jose Enrique and Lucas Leiva are stepping up their rehabilitation from respective knee and groin injuries.

Joe Allen faces a late-fitness test before Liverpool's week 19 match.

Allen is dealing with a knee issue and will be a late fitness test on Monday. He isn't very likely to be passed fit and should be avoided until ruled healthy. He has only averaged about four points per match this year and shouldn't be considered in the Yahoo! Fantasy game.

A knee injury sustained over the international break did not heal in time for Joe Allen to make the squad in Week 4, and Brendan Rodgers since has announced that the midfielder will remain out for a few weeks more.

With Allen out for a stretch, Rodgers will likely ask for Jordan Henderson to focus more on his defensive responsibilities, assisting Steven Gerrard in central midfield, and should allow for Phillipe Coutinho to get an extended run in the starting XI until Allen returns. This makes Henderson as less attractive option in fantasy and Coutinho a potentially sneaky, rewarding investment.

Joe Allen recently returned from injury and started Liverpool's last game against Southampton in place of Raheem Sterling.

Allen came off the bench in Liverpool's game against Swansea the week before and his play was good enough to earn him a start. The move may have been tactical, in an attempt to contain Southampton's midfield, so it's not necessarily certain that he'll keep starting. Avoid both Allen and Sterling until the situation settles.

Joe Allen, who has been so important to Liverpool in Steven Gerrard's absence, will miss some time with an abductor strain he picked up against Chelsea.

Steven Gerrard is returning from injury, so Allen's absence won't be felt too strongly. Still, it leaves Liverpool's midfield dangerously thing - especially since Jordan Henderson barely escaped his own injury after a bad tackle by Samuel Eto'o.

Midfielder Joe Allen could be available to face Newcastle United this weekend after coming back from a variety of injuries.

Allen return is being touted by the club as the cliched "like a new signing". He will give Liverpool some much needed depth in central midfield behind Lucas Leiva and Steven Gerrard.

Joe Allen tweaked his hamstring, Aly Cissokho took a knock to his ankle, and worst of all for Liverpool, Kolo Toure "overstretched his groin" according to Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool beat Notts County 4-2 in extra time yesterday, but losing Allen, Cissokho, and especially Toure will be a blow ahead of their big match against Manchester United this weekend.
