Guangzhou: Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and goalkeeper Pepe Reina should both recover from injury in time for the opening of the Premier League season, manager Kenny Dalglish said on Monday.
Gerrard is recovering from a groin operation and has not played since March, while Reina had a double hernia operation last month. Both were left out of Liverpool's Asian tour to China, Malaysia and Singapore.
"He has made fantastic recovery from the operation he had towards the end of last season. And he is just getting the last couple of niggles away and he should be fit to start of the season for us," Dalglish said of Gerrard.
