Sturridge in ‘top-class condition’ and could make Liverpool comeback against West Ham, confirms Rodgers

first_img Daniel Sturridge 1 Brendan Rodgers says Daniel Sturridge “looks in top-class condition” and the Liverpool boss will decide on Friday whether to play the striker against West Ham this weekend.The 25-year-old, out of action since September due to calf and thigh injuries, has been back in full training with his teammates this week.He has been badly missed by the Reds, with Rickie Lambert, Mario Balotelli and Fabio Borini all failing to fill the gap his absence has left.Rodgers is understandably desperate to get Sturridge back into his team, but he is not prepared to gamble on his fitness and will leave it as late as possible before making a call on whether to hand the England ace his comeback at Anfield on Saturday.“He has looked outstanding in training, but we will give him another day (before deciding whether to play him),” the Liverpool boss told a press conference.“I will have a chat with him (on Friday) and overview the week, how everything has gone, but in my brief conversation with him (on Thursday) I can tell he is happy and feeling very strong in his own body.“At this moment, he looks in top-class condition.”last_img read more
