Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will play in Monday's game at Swansea after a seven-game absence, the club announced Thursday. 

Gerrard has been sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered in a Feb. 10 win over Tottenham.

"I've just got over the hamstring injury and I am fit and available for the next game," Gerrard said. "I want to finish [this season] really strong. I want to leave the team in the top four and hopefully go all the way in the FA Cup, that'll be how I want to sign off."

Gerrard has scored six goals in 22 games against Premier League competition this season. The 34-year-old is set to join the Los Angeles Galaxy of MLS as a Designated Player in July. 

Liverpool currently sits in fifth place in the EPL with 28 points.
