Gerrard targets Spurs for comeback

Steven Gerrard has targeted Liverpool's trip to Tottenham to make his comeback from a groin injury.

The skipper insists he feels 'fitter, stronger and hungrier than ever' as he nears his Anfield comeback.

Gerrard has been sidelined since undergoing surgery in March, and has only played in six games since Kenny Dalglish's arrival at Anfield in January.

But after an intense period of rehabilitation which saw Liverpool physios work with him throughout the summer, the 31-year-old is eager to get back into his No.8 shirt.

He is preparing to return to full training next week and has set his sights on the Reds' trip to White Hart Lane on September 18 to make his comeback.

Gerrard had hoped to be fit in time for the start of the new season, only to suffer a setback in July. And the England midfielder admits it has been hard seeing Dalglish's new signings flourish in his absence.

Gerrard's recuperation was stalled during pre-season with news that he had acquired an infection.
