Sturridge could line up against Stoke City at the weekend.
There is some good news for Liverpool as injured striker Daniel Sturridge is set for an earlier return than expected and could play against Stoke City in the Premier League on Sunday, reports the Daily Mail.
The England international has been out of action since the end of November after picking up an ankle problem in a training session.
Before that Sturridge and strike partner Luis Suarez had formed a lethal pairing up-front and they had already earned the nickname ‘SAS’.
Since then Suarez has taken up the mantle of top-scorer with aplomb, already netting 20 league goals despite missing the first five games of the season.
However, up until then it was the Englishman who had been the focus of the Reds attack and Sturridge showed amazing consistency at the start of the campaign by netting in each of the club’s opening eight matches.
Initially it was thought the 24-year-old would be sidelined for two months, but the rehabilitation process has gone better than expected and the forward could line-up alongside Suarez at the weekend.
Since arriving on Merseyside in the 2013 January transfer window Sturridge has become one of the deadliest finishers in the English top tier.
After being under-utilised at both Manchester City and Chelsea, manager Brendan Rodgers recognised the potential of the attacker and in 30 fixtures since that £12m move, the ex-Blues man has scored an impressive 22 goals.
