Daniel Sturridge is in line to make his Liverpool comeback in the Merseyside derby against Everton tomorrow, according to BT Sport.
Sturridge has missed Liverpool’s last four games with a thigh strain sustained on international duty, and the Reds have struggled without him.
Brendan Rodgers side will be looking to bounce back from consecutive Premier League defeats tomorrow lunchtime, and hope Sturridge will be able to play some part against the side he hit three goals against last season.
‘We’ll be very happy to have him back and we hope that can be this weekend,’ said the boss. ‘We’ve got a number of injuries that we’re going to give every chance to.
‘He (Sturridge) is a player who’s out on the field working. Him and a number of others we’ll just assess nearer the time. But if he doesn’t make it he won’t be far off after that.
‘He’s someone that responds well to treatment. Obviously it’s gone well but there are still a couple of days to go before the game. The most important thing is he’s near to fitness.
‘He certainly won’t be match-fit, he hasn’t played for a few weeks, but it’ll be great to have him back because he’s a wonderful player for us.
‘He’s a great reference for our team at the top of the field, his pace and movement and quality, which we saw the last time he played against Tottenham.’
