Daniel Sturridge could make his long-awaited return against Manchester United on Sunday as he and other key West Brom players return slowly from injury.
The former Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool man was supposed to be the key ingredient that helped push Albion towards safety. It hasn't worked out that way after yet another injury marred his move to the Midlands. With Albion all but relegated, Sturridge's big opportunity is to play out the string of this season as an audition for whatever next season might hold for him. Based on what we've seen this season, he has a lot to prove if he wants to even sniff the top half in 2018-19. Apr 13 - 10:48 PM

West Bromwich Albion are expected to be without striker Daniel Sturridge for at least a month after tests confirm his hamstring injury is worse than first feared.

The Liverpool loanee limped off at Stamford Bridge on February 12 after only three minutes, but Alan Pardew was quick to play down fears of a serious setback. "He felt his hamstring after a 60m sprint in the first moments of the game. We'll have to nurse him. He won't play next week but hopefully the week after." However, reports now suggest that there is no "imminent" return planned for Sturridge who could be ruled out until after the international break meaning another month on the sidelines. The news will come as a hammer blow to the Baggies who are fighting for their Premier League lives having been cut adrift at the bottom of the table. West Brom lost to relegation rivals Huddersfield at The Hawthorns on Saturday, and now find themselves seven-points from safety and among the lowest scorers in the division.

Daniel Sturridge was forced off with an injury after just three minutes as West Brom were beaten 3-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

West Brom suffered a major blow early as Sturridge's match came to an end within minutes, limping off the the pitch after a challenge for possession with Cesar Azpilicueta. Jay Rodriguez was brought on and nearly put the Baggies ahead, but fired wide one-on-one with Thibaut Courtois. Salomon Rondon also missed a quality chance early, heading a bullet cross from Matt Phillips wide of the goal. Trailing 1-0 after the break but still in the affair, Rondon and Jonny Evans both missed chances before Chelsea sealed the match through Victor Moses and Eden Hazard. With West Brom bottom of the table and seven points from safety, expect manager Alan Pardew to rest Sturridge for this weekend's FA Cup match against Southampton.

West Brom remain at the bottom of the table after a 3-0 defeat by Manchester City at the Etihad.

West Brom travelled to Manchester unbeaten in their last four matches, but Alan Pardew's side could do little against the league leaders. The Baggies were pinned back for the entirety of the match and saw little of the ball in the attacking third until the late introduction of Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge, who joined on loan from Liverpool earlier this week, looked sharp and showed flashes of the attacking edge the club will need to fight off relegation. The defeat means West Brom sit in 20th, on 20 points, ahead of a must win match against Southampton on Saturday.

West Bromwich Albion announced one of its biggest signings in club history with a move for Daniel Sturridge.

Albeit, the club confirmed a loan for the Liverpool striker for the remainder of the season; still it's a massive coup for the Baggies as they fight relegation. The Birmingham native joins West Brom after recording 48 goals in 98 Premier League games for Liverpool, including a career-best 22 goals and eight assists in 2013/14. Injuries have limited him to only 55 games in the past four seasons, including just 15 appearances this season, but when healthy (and with a World Cup spot potentially up for grabs) Sturridge could be a menace at the top of the Baggies formation. Said Sturridge: "There were many things in deciding on this move. The manager spoke very well when we talked about the challenge with the team, there was the style of play and this feels like it was the right fit at the right time. I've got some friends here who are West Brom fans so I can't let them down as much as the any of the Albion supporters."

Daniel Sturridge is a doubt to make the squad for Liverpool's Week 17 match against West Bromwich Albion with a hamstring issue.

Sturridge has not featured in Liverpool's last three league games and only once in the last six. Jurgen Klopp has deemed the forward's hamstring problem a "minor thing" but Sturridge has not trained and is not fit to feature. Dominic Solanke seems to be pushing his way up the depth chart and Danny Ings finally made his first league appearance over the weekend. Meanwhile, rumors continue to swirl about a January exit for Sturridge. With the progression of Solanke and Ings, that rumor could very well prove true.

Daniel Sturridge scored his 100th goal as Liverpool flexed their attacking muscles in the second-half to beat Huddersfield Town 3-0 at Anfield.

Liverpool entered half time goalless after a frustrating 45 minutes, which was capped when Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl denied Mohamed Salah from the penalty spot. However, the hosts were much improved after the break. Sturridge was first to strike in the 50th minute, scoring his 100th goal on his 270 Premier League appearances with a well-taken effort after a mistake by Tommy Smith. Liverpool's attack then kicked into high gear as Roberto Firmino doubled the lead with a header eight minutes later before Georginio Wijnaldum rifled home to seal all three points. The victory means Jurgen Klopp's side jump up to sixth in the table, while his pal David Wagner's Huddersfield remain in 11th on 12 points.

Liverpool put together a show in a 3-0 Audi Cup win against Bayern Munich, but it wasn't all celebratory afterward.

Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to score the third and final goal against Bayern, but left minutes later after pulling up with a thigh injury. However, the injury-plagued forward played down concerns over another debilitating setback ahead of the new season: "I think it's just fatigue to be honest, so I'll be OK. I'm feeling great. I have put in the work, I trained a lot in the summer. I've not missed many sessions here, they have looked after me. We've done triple sessions and I have trained almost every single session. So I'm feeling great, the best I have felt for a while. I am looking forward to the season and hopefully we can have some success."

Jurgen Klopp is backing Daniel Sturridge to hit the ground running in August following an impressive pre-season from the England international.

The Liverpool manager was speaking to reporters in Hong Kong ahead of their game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday: "It’s the best condition he has been in since I have been here," Klopp said. "It has been quite intense what we have done and he has pretty much been part of each session so that is good. He is in good physical shape." Sturridge has struggled for regular game-time in recent years due to a troublesome hip problem, but the 27-year-old now appears to be ready to stake his claim for a place in the starting XI. Klopp also confirmed Sadio Mane is nearing a return to full fitness: "The plan is he will come with us to Germany [next week] and trains completely normally with us when we are back in England."

Reports on Saturday suggest Daniel Sturridge could miss tomorrows clash at Anfield having sat out of "several" training sessions this week.

The injury-plagued striker has endured another hugely disappointing season, only five Premier League starts [2-goals], and his days at Liverpool look to be numbered following his fourth injury of 2017 [calf / hip / ankle]. But while Sturridge remains a major doubt, Joel Matip and Lucas Leiva look to be winning their race to recover from muscular injuries in time to face Crystal Palace. Ragnar Klavan [knee] is expected to miss out and Jürgen Klopp "may try" Joe Gomez who has impressed for the Under-23s recently. Even though Firmino is training away from the main group, the Brazilian star will be fine as the club carefully manage him between games due to concerns that he is in the "red zone" [increased injury risk].

Daniel Sturridge has returned to training this week after spending a month on the shelf with a hip problem, but his participation in this weekend's Merseyside derby is highly unlikely.

If there is one thing we have learned this season out of Anfield is that Jurgen Klopp appears set to offload Sturridge this summer as the striker's ongoing injury issues has depleted the manager's faith. At this point, Divock Origi has likely passed Sturridge on the depth chart when both are fit, and that is just to play the role as first option off the bench, as Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are the clear starters in the front three. Like Klopp, fantasy managers should have little to no faith in Sturridge at this point, but perhaps the England international can make an impact down the stretch and increase his appeal on the market this summer.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was coy on the future of forward Daniel Sturridge at the club beyond this season.

Exit rumors have followed Sturridge since last summer with the forward struggling to stay fit and break into Klopp's starting lineup. Sturridge, who missed the weekend due to illness, has only scored two Premier League goals this season in 14 appearances, only five of which came in starts. Said Klopp: "We have to bring him back to the best shape possible and then bring this season to an end as successfully as possible. Then we will make decisions and speak about Daniel and any other players about what will happen at the end of the season. A lot of things will influence this and we can speak about it when it is time."

Liverpool allowed two leads to evaporate and could only manage a point against Sunderland as the two sides played to a 2-2 finish at the Stadium of Light.

After perhaps their finest defensive display of the season just two days ago against Manchester City, Liverpool managed to stop Sunderland scoring from open play. Unfortunately, the defense made a couple of mistakes under pressure and allowed two penalties to cancel out the leads of 0-1 and 1-2. The Reds scored first when Daniel Sturridge headed home a wayward shot by Dejan Lovren, the latter credited with a dubious assist. The second goal came from Sadio Mane, who pounced on a loose ball that came about from a corner. Mane now heads to the Africa Cup of Nations as Jurgen Klopp hopes Philippe Coutinho can fill the void when the Reds play their next league match in thirteen days.

Liverpool find itself caught in an all-too-familiar waiting game with Daniel Sturridge sidelined by a calf injury.

The forward has missed the last two Premier League matches due to the calf problem, giving Divock Origi a shot at the starting lineup with Philippe Coutinho also out. However, manager Jurgen Klopp said the only thing he knows about the forward's timetable is that he won't be available for this weekend or the midweek fixture on Tuesday: "[We have] no real idea. Until now he didn’t train on the pitch - maybe today but it wasn’t 100 per cent clear yesterday...He will be back as quickly as possible, but I have no idea at this moment. If he is not training with the team at the moment then we don’t have to think about him for West Ham, or think about him for Middlesbrough."

Liverpool will be without Daniel Sturridge for their trip to AFC Bouremouth on Sunday as the forward has yet to recover from a calf injury.

The Sturridge injury saga continues on and this one may be the final straw for Jurgen Klopp, as rumors are floating rampantly of a move for Sturridge in the January transfer window. At first, some begrudged Klopp for not finding space for Sturridge in the early stages of the season, but the England international has not done much in the time he's been given in league play, failing to score a single goal in 380 minutes of pitch time. Now, he will miss his fourth of the past six games, and even when he starts, he rarely plays beyond the hour mark. He is an excellent finisher, no doubt, but he has been fantasy poison for the past two years now.
