Liverpool striker Sturridge facing late fitness test

The former Chelsea man has impressed since moving to Anfield but could miss out on the upcoming clash with West Brom after suffering a thigh injury against Manchester City

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge will undergo a late fitness test in order to ascertain whether he can feature in Monday night’s Premier League clash with West Brom.

The 23-year-old, who has scored four goals in six games since moving to Anfield from Chelsea, withdrew from England duty due to a thigh injury picked up during last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

Raheem Sterling was also forced to abstain from international duty with the England Under-21 squad, but manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed he will be fit for this game.

“Raheem was on the field this morning so he’ll be fine,” Rodgers told reporters.

“Daniel we’re just monitoring over the next couple of days. It’s not overly serious but we just need to assess to see where he’s at. We’ll see by Sunday.

“Everyone else is fine.”
