During the week, Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish ruled out both Steven Gerrard and Daniel Agger out for the rest of the season. Gerrard, the Reds' captain, returned to training after having surgery on his groin, but then a similar injury occured. Center back Daniel Agger will be out for two months, after he suffered from a knee tendon injury in Liverpool's 2-1 loss to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
These players will be out of the match against Manchester City, along with Glen Johnson and Martin Kelly, who both have hamstring injuries. Those two will be out for around a month. Despite all of these injured players, Kenny Dalglish hasn't given up hope; "We’ve just got to get on with it and accept that’s the position we’re in. It’s up to us to make the best of it." With the wonderful recent form of Luis Suarez and Raul Meireles, hopefully this doesn't hurt the Reds' chances of overtaking Tottenham for 4th place.
