Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge left last weekend’s game against Manchester City with an injury. Clinging to a slim lead in the Premier League as the title race winds down to the last few games, they’d prefer to have one of the league’s highest scorers on the pitch against Norwich City. Sturridge has scored 20 goals in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool medical staff are still trying to evaluate Sturridge to make a decision, but there is a chance he is available to play.
“Sturridge has since undergone further assessment with the club’s medical team at Melwood and a small strain was detected following a scan,” a report on the club’s official website said.
“The 24-year-old will now undergo a treatment programme in order to try and be available for the trip to Carrow Road.”
While every game down the stretch is vital, Norwich comes ahead of a clash against Chelsea, a team competing with them for the title. Resting Sturridge for that game might be an intriguing option.
