Steven Gerrard out for a month
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has had to undergo surgery on his injured groin that he picked up in the Barclays Premier League match versus Chelsea. A statement on the clubs website read, "The decision was made following consultation with a specialist".
Its a major blow Liverpool as they had looked rejuvinated under new manager Kenny Dalgish. They sit 6th in the league and were hoping they could maintain this run of form until the end of the season to secure the place in europe next season.
European football is vital for Liverpool for them to hold on to top players such as Pepe Reina, who has already voiced his own unrest for staying at the club. If they could build on a 6th place finish into next season they can end up looking for top 4 otherwise it will be a dissapointing season for the fans.
