Gerrard doesn’t need a Zimmer!


Pin It

Liverpool take on Manchester United in the game of the day in the English Premier League’s early kick-off.

For Kenny Dalglish’s men there should be a return to action for influential captain Steven Gerrard who has not started a match since March last season.

If he plays, it’ll be the first time Dalglish will have started a match with Gerrard, Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll.

Dalglish said: ““Steven has been fantastic for the club and everybody would want him to go on for as long as he could because he has always been a fabulous asset.

“Long may it continue. I haven’t got a crystal ball, I don’t know how long he has left, maybe once he gets back into the swing of things he will have a better idea himself.

“Steven has made a huge contribution to this club and he isn’t going to change. He’s probably fitter now than he was before.

“He’s not in a Zimmer!* When he plays, you’ll still see him charging forward. He did that against Wolves the other week when he came on.”

United manger Sir Alex Ferguson hopes to break a bad streak at Anfield where he has not won a league game in more than five seasons.

Fergie said:  “Ferguson added: “I have always considered it to be the game of the season in English football.

“It is all to do with the history of both clubs and cities. The respect, in terms of the history of both clubs, should be adhered to and hopefully we can see that because it’s a fantastic occasion.”

Elsewhere Manchester City take on Aston Villa, Norwich entertain Swansea, QPR play Blackburn, Stoke host Fulham, Bolton travel to Wigan and in the evening game, Chelsea face Everton.

On Sunday West Brom play Wolves in the Midland derby, Sunderland travel to Arsenal while Newcastle host Tottenham.
