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." Mar 2 - 3:14 PM

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.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed forward Daniel Sturridge missed the weekend due to a calf injury.

It was the worst timing for Sturridge, who could have filled in for an injured Philippe Coutinho in the first half. Instead, Divock Origi came in and scored the opening goal against Sunderland. Said Klopp: "He had a tight calf. He hasn't trained for two days and I have no idea when he is back. It is not sure that he can train tomorrow, so he was out because of this injury." It remains to be seen whether Sturridge will be available for the week ahead, with Coutinho and Lallana also set to miss out.

In move which would be the reverse of recent trends, Southampton are hoping to sign a Liverpool player - none other than Daniel Sturridge.

Sturridge has been struggling in the Klopp era for game time as his recurring injury issues have blighted his fitness. He hasn't started a league game since mid-September for the Reds and has been a substitute often. The rumours state that the England international could move to the south coast in January on loan with a £25 million deal to go through next summer. It's clear that the Saints are struggling for goals with Charlie Austin being relied on far too heavily.

With rotation rampant among both sides, it was Liverpool who showed more quality in their depth as a Daniel Sturridge brace saw the Reds knock Tottenham out of the EFL Cup with a 2-1 win.

Liverpool made a full eleven changes from the side that beat West Brom over the weekend and Danny Ings still was unable to crack the XI, being named as a substitute. Sturridge partnered Divock Origi up top and the former got the opener inside of ten minutes. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou was given his first start with Tottenham but he slipped while on the ball allowing the Marko Grujic to get a shot on target and Sturridge poked in the rebound. Sturridge's second came shortly after the hour mark, latching onto a nice through ball from Georginio Wijnaldum and nutmegging Michel Vorm. Spurs pulled one back after Vincent Janssen scored from the spot but Liverpool allowed their two-goal cushion to stand.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed Daniel Sturridge has returned to training and looks set to be available against Hull City this weekend.

The forward has returned to training after missing much of the week, including the club's League Cup win against Derby County in midweek, due to a knock. Sturridge started last week in the absence of Roberto Firmino in the club's win against former club Chelsea, but faces a fight to get back into the starting lineup this week. Said Klopp: "Daniel made something like a final test yesterday, so he had three days without training but should be in training today. It depends on the training [whether he is fit for Hull], so it’s not only [about] being part of the training. I think [he will be available] but we will see."

Daniel Sturridge "should be" in contention against Hull City this weekend but the forward will have to prove his fitness over the next couple of days.

Sturridge had been kept out of training with his teammates as the oft-injured English international has been dealing with a knock since last weekend. This is his second injury already this season, after experiencing a hip problem last month. But, to be fair, neither ailment has seen him miss any significant time. Instead, he is finding himself as the fourth option in an attacking three for Jurgen Klopp and the manager could look to any minor problem with Sturridge as a reason to keep him as only a bench option. Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, provided the trio are fit, do not look to be giving up a starting role any time soon.

Daniel Sturridge missed out on Liverpool's friendlies with Barcelona and Mainz over the weekend as he has popped up with a hip problem and Jurgen Klopp has "no idea" if the striker will be available for Week 1 against Arsenal.

It is deja vu all over again for the injury-prone Sturridge who, to some degree of irony, had been put through a specialized pre-season training regiment that was designed to prevent him from incurring any damage before the season started and here he is with a hip problem, the same issue that he dealt with at the beginning of last season before going on to miss the majority of the campaign with several more setbacks. Klopp does have a fit Danny Ings to call upon but Christian Benteke and Mario Balotelli are both very likely to leave before the summer window closes. This could be a season where we see Roberto Firmino starting up top more than was originally anticipated, that would allow an extra spot to go to one of the many quality midfielders at Liverpool's disposal. Still, the severity of Sturridge's hip is yet unknown. He has not been ruled out of Week 1 just yet.

Roy Hodgson confirms Daniel Sturridge is suffering from a "minor [calf] injury" which is not expected to affect his chances of appearing at this summers’ European Championships.

The rumour mill has been on full tilt this week suggesting Sturridge would miss out on a place at Euro 2016. The 26-year-old has failed to train since arriving at camp, but Hodgson remains hopeful he can overcome this latest setback and prove his fitness in training on Monday: "I have no indication the seriousness of the injury is such, (that) it is putting his chances in jeopardy at all." If injury was to rule Sturridge out, then the Three Lions would turn to man-of-the-moment Marcus Rashford whose remarkable rise from anonymity was capped on Friday with a goal on his England senior debut after only three-minutes.

Reports suggest that Daniel Sturridge has suffered an injury in the build up to Fridays’ friendly international at the Stadium of Light.

Sturridge was a notable absentee from training on Wednesday – along with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill – but confusion lies around the severity of problem with some sections of the media suggesting his calf injury could potentially rule him out of the upcoming European Championships. Meanwhile, Sky Sports report that while the Liverpool striker is being "assessed", he was rested as a "precaution" and is "expected" to be involved in tomorrows’ Euro warm-up game against Australia - although I’d suggest no risks will be taken ahead of the tournament in France. Jamie Vardy won’t be involved following his wedding earlier this week but Marcus Rashford has been passed fit - Harry Kane and captain Wayne Rooney could also be considered in attack.

Liverpool took a 1-0 lead into halftime, courtesy of a sublime Daniel Sturridge goal, but Sevilla would turn things around drastically and defeat the Reds, 3-1, in the Europa League final.

It was a tight affair for much of the first half with both sides feeling each other out, but Liverpool found an opener in the 35th minute. Philippe Coutinho's short pass found Sturridge and the England striker curled a beauty into the far corner. The Reds applied more pressure and nearly scored again before the break while Sevilla could have been penalized for handball on at least one occasion but were left off the hook. The second half was a completely different story as Sevilla dominated the entire time. Kevin Gameiro would equalize just 17 seconds after play resumed then Sevilla right back Koke would score twice, having never scored in the competition before. His first was a right footed blast near the top of the box, the second was a gift as an attempted clearance was deflected into his path and he beat the keeper in a 1 v 1. Sevilla win their third consecutive European trophy, the first club to achieve that feat since Bayer Munich in the mid-1970s.

Jurgen Klopp rang in the changes but it was one of Liverpool's stars, Daniel Sturridge, who provided an goal and an assist to guide the Reds to a 1-2 win over AFC Bournemouth.

Roberto Firmino was the only player to start Thursday against Dortmund and again today. Fringe players Danny Ward, Connor Randall, Brad Smith and Kevin Stewart were all handed starts and Lucas played at center back. It worked out in the end as many key players were rested ahead of the Merseyside derby and they grabbed the three points. In the 41st minute, A Jordon Ibe corner was backheeled on target by Sturridge and Firmino scored on the rebound. Ibe then assisted Sturridge directly just before halftime as the former delivered another corner and the latter headed it into the corner of goal. The Cherries pulled one back late but with too little time to change the result.

Jurgen Klopp has indicated in Liverpool's Friday press conference that Daniel Sturridge has trained "completely normally" ahead of Sunday's meeting with Crystal Palace.

Sturridge was suffering from a cramp picked up in last weekend's cup final and was left out of the squad entirely for the Reds convincing midweek win over Manchester City. It would seem certain that Sturridge will make the matchday squad, but his chances of starting are not so clear. It was a very positive win over the Sky Blues and Divock Origi may have earned his chance to keep his place leading the line. Further clouding the issue for Sturridge owners in leagues where lineup changes can be made after the opening kickoff, with the match being on Sunday, it leaves very little in the way of replacement options should Sturridge not make the Starting XI. It might be wise for Sturridge owners in draft leagues to make room for Origi and just go with whoever gets the start in the coming weeks. It appears Christian Benteke is never going to challenge either before season's end.
