Gerrard (hamstring) faces a late fitness test for Saturday's match against Aston Villa, and there is no guarantee that he'll be fit for Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Chelsea.

Gerrard picked up the injury during the first half of last Saturday's match against Sunderland, and while manager Brendan Rodgers described his removal at halftime as precautionary, there's clearly more to it than that. If Gerrard is forced to sit, Rodgers will likely go with the combination of Jordan Henderson and Lucas Leiva as his holding midfielders.

Gerrard put two of his seven shots through the net in the FA Cup Third Round against AFC Wimbledon on Monday.

Gerrard was in control Monday as five of his seven shots were on goal. Since announcing his eventual departure from Liverpool at the end of this season, he's scored a total of four goals over two matches and seems poised to have an eventful Swan song. He'll take this momentum into Saturday's Premier League match against Sunderland, a team that is conceding 1.5 goals per match.
