News of their improvement comes as a major boost to Benitez, who is likely to be without the injured Daniel Agger this weekend.
The boss told his pre-match press conference: "Skrtel trained yesterday and hopefully he'll be fit. Carragher has been working with the physios today and we think he'll be available. Agger is also working with the physios but it will be more difficult for him."
Gerrard pulled out of England's friendly international with Holland this week due to a tight groin.
Benitez added: "I am really pleased because Mr Capello wanted to protect players. Because Gerrard had a problem they did a scan and pulled him out of the squad. We don't know if he'll be fit. He was working with the physios yesterday and today.
"If the game would have been on Saturday it would be difficult but because it's on Sunday he could have a chance."
Will we not even get a chance to see any Gernando action on Sunday? *flails* At least there's a chance he might be fit. Good news about Squirtle and Carra though!
ps. My first post? Hope I didn't screw anything up!
