Pascoe delivers latest Liverpool injury update ahead of Palace tie

Colin Pacoe reveals Steven Gerrard has undergone a scan on his hamstring injury

Colin Pascoe says Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has undergone a scan on his hamstring ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup fifth-round clash at Crystal Palace.

The 34-year-old midfielder was replaced due to the problem in the second half of the Merseyside outfit’s 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Gerrard can crown a decorated Liverpool career with a final FA Cup triumph if the Reds can navigate the next four hurdles and win the completion at Wembley on his birthday, 30 May.

But Liverpool assistant manager Pascoe appeared to rule Gerrard out of contention to face the Eagles in the cup clash in east London on Saturday evening.

“Unfortunately, he felt his hamstring just towards the end of the game,” Pascoe told his pre-match media conference at Melwood on Thursday.

“He’s having a scan this morning and we’re just waiting for the results to come back on that one.”

Sterling missed the visit of Tottenham due to a foot injury, but Pascoe insisted the England international won’t be rushed back into the Liverpool side.

“We’re monitoring Raheem,” added Pascoe. “He was gutted he missed the game the other night as he wasn’t available. We’re just monitoring him and seeing how he is.”
