Liverpool Still Confident Ahead of Udinese Clash Despite Gerrard Absence

Liverpool will play a decisive Europa League tie against Udinese this Thursday as qualification is at stake for the Reds. Unfortunately for such an important game, Brendan Rodgers’ side will not be able to rely on the leadership of their skipper, Steven Gerrard.

Rodgers confirmed that Gerrard won’t be available for Thursday game as the England international is still ill, so there’s no point in risking him to play.

However, Rodgers is still confident that his side can pick up a win against Udinese and continue their journey in the competition.
