Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits they're sweating on a hip injury for Steven Gerrard.

Rodgers admitted he didn't know the full extent of the knock, but was hopeful Gerrard would be able to shrug off the minor hip complaint and handle the fixture load with England's friendlies against Chile and Germany later this month.

Rodgers said: "He took a knock towards the end, with his hip.

"I'm not sure the complete diagnosis on it.

"Stevie's been brilliant for me, it was a tough game for him, but we'll assess his injury and see where he's at.

"Roy (Hodgson) has always handled Stevie really well, both when he was Liverpool manager and now the player is England captain, so I'm sure that will be fine."
