Steven Gerrard takes to Instagram to post a photo of training at Melwood
Steven Gerrard appeared to enjoy a lighthearted training session with Liverpool team-mates Mario Balotelli, Philippe Coutinho and Dejan Lovren on Thursday.
Brendan Rodgers rested the Liverpool quartet for their 1-0 loss to Champions League holders Real Madrid at the Bernabeu mid-week.
However, Liverpool captain Gerrard is expected to be restored to the starting line-up for the visit of Premier League leaders Chelsea on Saturday.
And the 34-year-old was in fine form as the long-serving Reds midfielder posted a photo from Melwood training ground to his Instagram account.
Gerrard wrote: “Training today with the lads @phil.coutinho @dejanlovren06 @mb459”
Earlier on Thursday, Liverpool manager Rodgers revealed striker Daniel Sturridge won’t be fit to face his former club this weekend.
“He’s out on the field today with the rehab team, he was moving very well,” the Northern Irishman said at the training ground. “But he’s probably a little bit of time away.”
Liverpool are 12 points behind leaders Chelsea.
