Sturridge could feature against Chelsea, reveals Rodgers

The 25-year-old has been sidelined since Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Tottenham on August 31 with thigh and hamstring injuries, but is back in full training and recovering well

Daniel Sturridge will be monitored ahead of a possible return for Liverpool in Tuesday’s League Cup semi-final second-leg clash with Chelsea, Brendan Rodgers has revealed.

Sturridge scored 21 goals in 29 Premier League appearances last season but has been sidelined since the Reds’ 3-0 win over Tottenham at White Hart Lane on August 31 with thigh and hamstring injuries.

But the 25-year-old is back in training and Rodgers says his star striker could be fit enough to take a place on the bench at Stamford Bridge, though he is more likely to return against West Ham on January 31.

“He’s done all his rehab he’s at a really good level of fitness,” Rodgers told BT Sport.

“He’ll only have a couple of days; we’ll see how he is for Chelsea. He’ll be ready for West Ham – whether he starts or not.”
