Daniel Sturridge set to be assessed by Jurgen Klopp

Published 3 Comments

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expected to assess striker Daniel Sturridge during this afternoon's training session. 

This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that it's extremely unlikely that the England international will be involved in the club's Capital One Cup contest with Bournemouth tomorrow evening. 

The Merseyside outfit are still looking for their first win under the guidance of former Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp, but it appears that they will have to make do without Sturridge, who is yet to play under the German regime.

Sturridge has missed the last three fixtures after suffering a bruised knee in training and it's uncertain as to whether he will return in time for the club's Premier League showdown with rivals Chelsea on Saturday. 

Klopp and struggling Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho are set to go head-to-head for the first time in England's elite division when the two sides meet at Stamford Bridge.

However, with the immediate focus on the cup, the same report claims that the duo of Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino could be in line for a start against Eddie Howe's Bournemouth. 

Sturridge Struggles 

Will Sturridge ever return to prominence on Merseyside? Ultimately, it has been a year or so to forget for the once lethal forward. The ex-Chelsea man remains a class act, of course, but he's in desperate need of starring week in, week out. 

It's crucial that Klopp manages him correctly in his pursuit of recovery. By no means is Sturridge a lost cause and he will be hoping that there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
