Captain Fantastic has featured in every top-flight game so far for the Reds this campaign.
Liverpool are considering bringing forward captain Steven Gerrard’s shoulder operation that had been scheduled to take place at the end of the season, reports the Daily Mail.
The England international skipper has been troubled by the problem for some time now, however, head coach Brendan Rodgers had initially been reluctant for the midfield player to go under the knife while the club still had an outside chance of finishing this campaign in a European place.
But, with the Merseyside giants now almost certain to finish the campaign in seventh place in the Premier League standings come what may after Sunday’s goalless draw with city-rivals Everton at Anfield, the thinking within the club has since changed.
Gerrard, 32, has so far featured in all of Liverpool’s 36 top-flight fixtures to date, and had been on course to play in every single Premier League game of the season for the very first time since he made his Reds debut in 1998.
