Daniel Sturridge hoping to be fit for Capital One Cup final

Published 3 Comments

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is praying that he will be fit for the Capital One Cup final, according to The Sun. 

Sturridge has endured a torrid campaign on Merseyside - he has only featured in five Premier League games all season - so it's far from certain as to whether he will be able to prove his fitness in time for next month's Wembley showdown against Manchester City. 

However, after suffering a hamstring injury, the same report from The Sun claims that the 26-year-old still hasn't started training outside.

The notion that Sturridge may never entirely recover may well be correct, but you can hardly blame Jurgen Klopp for giving the striker a shot at redemption.

Liverpool in need 

When fit and firing, Sturridge is one of the best forwards in the division. Ultimately, though, he hasn't been fit on a consistent basis for far too long.

It's clear for all to see that Liverpool certainly need him. Recent performances just haven't been good enough - the Reds failed to score in recent home games against Stoke City and West Ham - so the return of the forward would change the dynamic of the side. 

A return in the Capital One Cup final would come as a major boost for all involved, but Liverpool fans won't exactly be getting their hopes up at this stage.
