Liverpool have ruled captain Steven Gerrard out of Sunday's big match with Manchester City and are refusing to put a date on his likely return.

Gerrard has not featured for the club since a draw with Norwich City on October 22 as he has been suffering from an ankle infection.

Concerns were heightened when he was pictured with a protective boot but Liverpool remain adamant the midfielder is progressing well in his recovery.

"Like we've already said, we are delighted with the progress he's making and we've said that we won't put a date on his return - and we won't put a date on it now," said manager Kenny Dalglish. "We are very happy with his progress."

Manchester United, held to a disappointing 2-2 draw by Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday, must wait on the fitness of Wayne Rooney ahead of Saturday's match against Newcastle United. The striker has been having treatment on a bruised bone.

Bolton's injury problems have deepened with the news that Joe Riley has sustained a hamstring injury, while Wolves are deprived of important midfielders Jamie O'Hara and Stephen Hunt due to suspension.
