Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish will still not speculate on when captain Steven Gerrard will again be available.

The England midfielder has been sidelined since the end of October with an ankle infection and Dalglish admits he does not know if he will be back in contention during the busy Christmas period.

"We don't have any problems, apart from Jack Robinson, Steven (Gerrard) and Fabio (Aurelio) as well," the Scot told the club's official website.

"The longer term ones aren't in the squad.

"It remains to be seen (if Gerrard will play), but we won't be making any comments on it."
