Home UEFA Champions League Sturridge returns.

Sturridge returns.


Liverpool centre forward Daniel Sturridge is set for a return to the Liverpool first team, after missing the clubs last nine fixtures in the League after an injury. 

The striker damaged his ankle ligaments during a routine training session on 29th November, and faced several weeks on the sidelines. 

But the striker is now back to full fitness and will presumably make his Premier League return in Liverpool’s game away at Stoke City at the Britannia. 

It was feared Sturridge would be out for two months but his rehabilitation has gone smoothly, and he passed an intensive outdoor session at Melwood on Monday. 
The striker is also yet to resume is partnership with Luis Suarez, as Brendan Rodgers’ men will try and hit the heavy heights of the Champions League, and beyond, with the Mesrseyside club in fine form. 

Before the 24-year-old was ruled out, Sturridge had combined with Suarez to score 14 goals in seven Barclays Premier League games.

And with Liverpool playing several of their rivals in the next few weeks, wins are needed. 

His return is also good news for England after the recent shock over the long-term injury to Theo Walcott, who has recently suffered a knee cruciate injury. 

Sturrisge signed for the Reds last January, and has been a constant performer for his side.
