Liverpool Offer Update On Daniel Sturridge Injury
Liverpool have offered an update on the fitness of Daniel Sturridge and it looks like the striker may have a chance of facing Norwich City this weekend.
Liverpool have offered an update on the fitness of Daniel Sturridge and it looks like the striker may still have a chance of featuring against Norwich City this weekend.
The in-form 24-year-old was forced off midway through the second half during the Reds vital 3-2 win over Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
Brendan Rodgers said immediately after the game that it looked like the striker had picked up a minor hamstring injury but refused to be drawn on how long the player could be out for until further assessments were carried out by the medical team.
Those checks have now been made and the club have confirmed on their official website this afternoon that scans have revealed a small strain on the attackers muscle.
The update doesn’t give any indication as to how long Sturridge could be out for but the club does say that he will undergo further treatment on the injury this week to try and get him fit and available for this weekend’s trip to Carrow Road.
A statement on Liverpoolfc.com read:
Sturridge has since underwent further assessment with the club’s medical team at Melwood and a small strain was detected following a scan.
The 24-year-old will now undergo a treatment programme in order to try and be available for the trip to Carrow Road.
When Sturridge went off it looked like he was facing at least two weeks on the sidelines so to have him back the following week would be a a huge boost to Rodgers if he is passed fit to play on Sunday.
Sturridge has formed a deadly partnership with Luis Suarez up front this season and along with Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling, the Merseysiders have the most formidable attack in the league, so it would be a major advantage if the England ace was able to feature as Liverpool look to cement their place at the top of the table this weekend.
