Reds front man suffering from thigh strain.
Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of striker Daniel Sturridge ahead of their Premier League encounter with West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Monday night.
fanatix tickets– Aston Villa vs Liverpool tickets are on sale from £30 for the match on March 31st at Villa Park.
The Reds’ new signing has made a sensational start to life on Merseyside, scoring four goals since arriving for £12 million from Chelsea in the January transfer window, including a sensational strike against his former club Manchester City at the Ethiad on Sunday.
However, it was during that encounter that the forward picked up a thigh strain that has since ruled him out of England’s friendly international with Brazil at Wembley on Wednesday.
“I got a knock on my quad and I’m going to get a scan on it,” Sturridge told the club’s official website.
“Hopefully it’s not too serious and I’ll be okay for next week’s game.
“In our last two games we have played against two great clubs and deserved to win both of the games.
“We’ll regroup and get ready for our next game against West Bromwich Albion, which is another massive game for us because they are also challenging for the top places.
“We are nine points off the top four so it’s not a massive gap to try and recoup so hopefully we’ll be able to do that – we believe we can.”
