Daniel Sturridge returns to training at Liverpool

Published 5 Comments

Daniel Sturridge's Liverpool return is edging ever closer after pictures emerged of the forward training at the club's Melwood complex.

Sturridge has been out of action since appearing in an FA Cup tie against Blackburn Rovers on April 8 and his goals were terribly missed by the Reds last season, as they stuttered to sixth place in the Premier League.

The England forward could yet return for the Merseyside club when they face arch rivals Manchester United on September 12 and there are not many bigger games to make your comeback.

Expectations are high

The 25-year-old had a torrid experience in the 2014-15 season, originally getting injured after three games of the campaign and not returning until January.

He went on to make 15 appearances in all competitions scoring four goals, before another injury ended his season.

Liverpool have started the new campaign well, picking up seven points from their first three matches and will be hoping to continue their unbeaten start at home to West Ham before the international break.

The trip to Old Trafford follows and while it may be too soon for the former Chelsea man to make the starting line-up, his presence on the bench will be a boost for all at Liverpool.

The possibility of the England international linking up with Christian Benteke is an exciting prospect and could produce one of the most lethal strike forces in the top flight.

However it is early days, and given Sturridge's recent history with injuries the immediate concern will be for the forward to make a full recovery before expecting too much of him. But one thing is for sure, Liverpool fans are excited ahead of the forwards return.

Liverpool fans, what is your view on Sturridge's return? Can he stay fit? Can he strike up a partnership with Benteke? Have your say below!
