Liverpool fans, hello and welcome to today’s round-up.

We also like to think we can contribute to you getting over ‘that’ hill by way of feeding you the very latest football news to digest and debate. Read on below or watch the video above. Let us know thoughts and/or opinions in the comments box below.

Sturridge injured again

The timeline of Daniel Sturridge’s injuries is almost comical in length, with the latest notch on the belt a hamstring issue he picked up during the loss to Newcastle United this weekend.

According to an article from BBC Sport, a scan has shown a strain that is set to keep him out for a number of weeks - this in spite of the fact that he’s only just become available for Jurgen Klopp after his previous problems.

The stats are damning, to say the least. Is Sturridge becoming more of a headache than he’s worth?

The man himself sent this message to fans:

Grujic interest

Moving on though the transfer grapevine is claiming that the Reds want to sign Marko Grujic of Red Star Belgrade this January.

More specifically, the Liverpool Echo say the 19-year-old is admired by Jurgen Klopp and that Liverpool are leading the chase to sign him. Chelsea, Inter Milan and Roma are also interested.

Coutinho nearing return

Lastly, Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho is nearing his return from a hamstring injury, according to The Guardian.

The classy 23-year-old is expected back soon, which to some degree softens the blow regarding Sturridge’s absence.

Fans will certainly want him back as soon as possible though it’s not known if he will return in time for Sunday’s Premier League fixture against West Brom.
