Sturridge closing in on Liverpool return

Daniel Sturridge has resumed light training after injury with the Liverpool forward getting closer to making a comeback, ESPN has reported.

Sturridge suffered a thigh injury while on England duty earlier in September and Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was critical of the national team set-up for their handling of the player’s fitness.

It’s not expected that Sturridge will be involved for the Reds against West Ham this weekend, having missed the midweek Champions League win over Bulgarian side Ludogorets, but he could make enough of a recovery to play a part in the following Premier League fixture, the visit of Everton for the first Merseyside derby of the season.

Sturridge has scored once for Liverpool this season, claiming a goal on the opening weekend against Southampton but drawing blanks as the team lost to Manchester City and beat Tottenham Hotspur.

The 25-year-old played almost the full 90 minutes of England’s 1-0 friendly win over Norway, without scoring, but missed the Euro 2016 qualifier a few days later against Switzerland due to injury.
