Benitez: Liverpool can cover Gerrard absence

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will miss this weekend's clash with Sunderland because of a broken toe.

However, manager Rafa Benitez claims he has enough good cover at the club to cope with Gerrard's absence.

"It is clear we have a better squad and more players in this position, " said the Anfield coach.

"If we need to manage now it will be easier, I am sure."
