REDS WAITING ON TORRES AND GERRARD

Rafael Benitez will give late fitness tests to both Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard before finalising his team selection for Sunday's showdown with Manchester United.
Both players are currently facing a race against time to be fit to take on Alex Ferguson's men after recovering from groin problems.

Torres trained with his teammates on Friday and will be assessed further tomorrow, while Benitez hasn't given up hope of Gerrard recovering sufficiently before kick-off to take his place in the team.

"It's the same situation for both players," he said today. "Fernando trained today and has been working to a specific programme.

"Steven didn't train but we will speak with the physios over the weekend before making a decision.

"It's too soon to say if they will be involved. We will make late decisions with both of them."

Benitez is also hoping Glen Johnson has recovered from a groin injury in time for Sunday's game, but Andrea Dossena and Sotirios Kyrgiakos are still both sidelined.
