Liverpool could be without captain Steve Gerrard for next week's Champions League qualifier against Standard Liege after he was injured on Tuesday.

Gerrard, 28, limped off with a thigh strain in the first half of Liverpool's 4-1 friendly win against Valerenga.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is hopeful Gerrard will be fit to travel to Belgium for the 12 August fixture.

"It is a thigh strain. We need to wait but it could be one week," the Spaniard told Liverpool's official website.
