Brendan Rodgers has revealed Liverpool will remain without Daniel Sturridge for the clashes with Newcastle, Real Madrid and Chelsea, reports the Daily Mirror.
Sturridge has not featured for the Reds since August 31, and now looks set to miss Liverpool’s biggest week of the season to date.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash with Newcastle, when asked if Sturridge would be fit the boss replied bluntly: “No. I don’t think he will be fit.”
“When you have that talent, you just have to keep yourself fit and available as you possibly can,” said Rodgers. “But the bottom line is he is injured. He has strained his calf so he is injured.
“We will work with him and hopefully we will get that bit of luck when he comes back. When he comes back, hopefully we will have him for the rest of the season.”
