Sturridge returns from injury
Liverpool striker, Daniel Sturridge, has returned to training with the Reds after being sidelined for a month, following a thigh injury which he sustained on while playing in England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland on 5 September.
He joined Steven Gerrard, Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini, Joe Allen and Jose Enrique at the Melwood training ground on Thursday.
The 25-year-old did not participate in his side’s entire training session, opting to train with rehabilitation coach, Jordan Milsom, instead.
Red’s manager, Brendan Rodgers, has said that his team’s striking force has suffered since the absence of Sturridge, as replacement strikers, Rickie Lambert and Balotelli, have not yet scored a goal this season.
Sturridge is set to return to the field for the game against Queens Park Rangers on 19 October, which has been seen as good news for the Reds, who have only picked up four points since Sturridge’s absence, leaving them ninth on the log.
