Daniel Sturridge returned to the starting XI and scored the opening goal as Liverpool would go on to trounce Aston Villa on their ground, 0-6.
Sturridge grabbed the opener in the 16th minute, heading in a cross from Philippe Coutinho. James Milner would score from a free kick nine minutes later. It stayed that way until the 58th minute, and then the Villa defense went to complete shambles, as the Reds would score four times over the next 13 minutes. Goals came courtesy of Emre Can, Divock Origi, Nathaniel Clyne and Kolo Toure. Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino each had and assist while Coutinho collected three. In all, nine of ten outfield players had a part in the six goals, something you don't see every day. No need to rush out and invest in Liverpool however, they have a blank in Week 27.

Liverpool may have lost their FA Cup replay against West Ham yesterday but they did welcome Daniel Sturridge back to the pitch after he came in for Philippe Coutinho in the 59th minute.

Sturridge didn't do a great deal in his return registering three shots but failing to hit the target with any of them. Still, with Roberto Firmino playing out of position as a target forward for much of the past two months, the return of Sturridge could signal a boost to the Liverpool attack that would look much better with a healthy Sturridge supported by Firmino and an also-returning Coutinho. Of course we must take any "Sturridge is back" talk with a massive grain of salt since his recent history tells us that he's more likely to be out again soon with another injury than making a protracted run of starts.

Jurgen Klopp appears to be none the wiser as to when Daniel Sturridge will make his long awaited return to first team action. The German boss today confirmed that the striker will miss out again this weekend.

"He's still working; sometimes it's better and sometimes it's a bit worse because of one or the other issues. He needs consistency in sessions and that's what we try to do," Klopp said. "He cannot play tomorrow and for sure not against Leicester and I don't know what happens after this to be honest." Sturridge has been missing since the defeat at Newcastle in December and despite the initial optimism of an early return, the England international has yet to feature in 2016 following a series of setbacks. Liverpool will play their ninth game of the month on Saturday and with Divock Origi still sidelined and Christian Benteke seemingly out of favour, the Reds certainly need the 26-year-old back amongst their ranks to help bolster the squad with the club still fighting on four fronts.

Daniel Sturridge is on the comeback trail once again but it may be some time before the Liverpool striker is ready for a return to action.

Jürgen Klopp revealed during Tuesdays’ pre-match FA Cup briefing: "(There is) no chance for Daniel. He has had a break in training because of some issues. He’s now back but no team training since Newcastle (early December). I don’t know how long it is. That’s not a situation we can think about him." With Danny Ings (ACL) out for the remainder of the season and Divock Origi set for another month on the sidelines (knee surgery), striking duties have fallen to Christian Benteke who has failed to impress. Indeed, the German manager has opted to start recent games without a recognised forward. Liverpool managed just four shots on target from [19] during Sundays’ defeat to North West rivals Man United who converted their one and only shot at goal.

Daniel Sturridge will not be involved in Tuesday nights’ Capital One cup semi-final against Stoke City after suffering a minor setback in training.

Although Jürgen Klopp has remained tight-lipped regarding a proposed return for Sturridge, it was generally accepted that the England international would be ready early in the New Year. However, during todays’ pre-match briefing Klopp revealed: "Daniel had some problems, not serious, but he couldn’t make the next session. When he’s had a row of sessions, I will pick him. I won’t hold him back. But in this moment, because he hasn’t had one session with the team, he’s not available." With Divock Origi also injured Christian Benteke is expected to lead the Liverpool attack.

Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out until the New Year. The Liverpool striker suffered a hamstring injury at Newcastle on Sunday and the England international will be sidelined for "several weeks" as he recovers from yet another setback.

The injuries just keep on coming for Sturridge, who has spent more than half of his Liverpool career in the treatment room. Hip surgery earlier this year – and the subsequent five month recovery – was meant to remedy the ongoing muscular issues which have blighted the strikers progress in recent years, but the bad news [and luck] just keeps on coming. Having returned to the first team squad at the back end of September, Sturridge has added not one, not two but another three injuries to an already extensive list of medical problems. Firstly, Sturridge missed more than a month after taking a knock to the knee in training while the striker was ruled out for a few days in November due to a foot complaint and now…… Sturridge won't feature again until 2016. The precise details and nature of the injury are not yet known

The Liverpool Echo are optimistic about Daniel Sturridge's return and possible partnership with Christian Benteke in the Reds attack, but cooler heads should ponder the risk of starting the oft-injured striker.

While it would be an intriguing pair to watch do damage on the pitch in theory, perhaps the best thing to do regarding Sturridge is to use him as a bench option for the foreseeable future. It would be a different story if Danny Ings were fit and could be that bench option if needed, but Liverpool have a no other proven striker beyond Benteke and Sturridge. Perhaps a month as a bench option can carry Pool to the transfer window and an additional striker can be brought in while Sturridge proves he can stay healthy.

Daniel Sturridge has been sent to have a scan on his foot after having an injury setback during training.

Here we go again. Not even 24 hours removed from Jurgen Klopp stating that Sturridge was progressing well and training every day without setbacks, along comes the latest setback. We made the call at Rotoworld a month ago to consider Sturridge out indefinitely for fantasy purposes and that prediction is bearing fruit. Owners in draft leagues should at least hold out for the results of this latest scan, but any talk of a prolonged absence and it is time to start thinking about dropping him and moving on. Regardless of diagnosis, Liverpool need to think about adding another striker/forward option in January.

Oft-injured striker Daniel Sturridge has returned to full training for Liverpool.

It was in training that Sturridge suffered his latest injury, damaging his knee. The recovery took longer than expected as fluid build up in the knee had to subside. Sturridge has yet to feature under Jurgen Klopp, and owners in draft leagues still hanging on to him shouldn't count on a start in Week 13. In fact, with Christian Benteke fit and Danny Ings lost for the season, it may make the most sense to utilize Sturridge as only a bench weapon, even if the striker is at 100%. This will only make his fantasy value increasingly problematic but Liverpool need to figure out a way to allow him to contribute without seeing him quickly sidelined again.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed in his press conference today that Daniel Sturridge will not be available for Liverpool's match against Chelsea tomorrow.

We know for certain that Danny Ings' season is all but over with his ACL injury. When it comes to Sturridge at this point, one should consider him out indefinitely. Klopp has yet to see the forward on the pitch since taking over for Brendan Rodgers and, if the manager has any knowledge of his injury history, should view Sturridge as a mere luxury option for the brief times he may be fit during the season. Even with all the cash splashed on Ings and Benteke, the Reds would be wise to shop for another striker that can at least be serviceable if called upon.

Jurgen Klopp revealed that Daniel Sturridge will be unavailable for the Capitol One Cup match against AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

Yet to feature under the Klopp regime, Sturridge's knee injury lingers on. Considering he isn't back to health yet to even make the bench for the cup tie tomorrow night, it puts his Week 11 availability in major doubt. Owners in draft leagues are the only fantasy managers who should have Sturridge at this point, and it remains a significant headache for those unfortunate souls. He is too valuable when fit, and he is not projected to miss significant time. The problem is, his fitness doesn't seem to last very long these days. Christian Benteke has worked his way back to health, and would likely lead the line over Divock Origi when the Reds battle Chelsea on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp indicated in Liverpool's press conference ahead of their match against Southampton that Daniel Sturridge will have a scan on his knee, making him a major doubt for Sunday.

It is time to rule him out entirely this weekend from a fantasy manager's perspective. He shouldn't be in too many teams at the moment, isn't worth risking in salary leagues, and with the Reds playing the final match of the gameweek, you cannot have a backup plan for him in draft leagues. Christian Benteke came on as a sub in last night's Europa league match and as long as he has no setbacks between now and Sunday, should be expected to get the start.

In his press conference ahead of Liverpool's Europa tie with Rubin Kazan, Jurgen Klopp stated that he is targeting a return Sunday for Daniel Sturridge.

While credit is due to Totteham's defending in Klopp's goalless debut, clearly the inclusion of Sturridge in the Reds attack will be a significant boost as the new manager prepares for a date with Southampton. The manager will be making his Anfield debut against Rubin Kazan Thursday night and it should make for a compelling watch as he steps onto the ground for the first time. Sturridge owners will be happy that this latest injury appears to have been a minor one, but should be looking to transfer him out of the FPL game because of his injury record, while owners in draft leagues may want to wait for a run of form and attempt to trade him for the same reasons.

Injury problems continue to mount for Liverpool as Daniel Sturridge is ruled out of the game at White Hart Lane after picking up a minor knee complaint this week.

Sturridge joins a long list of absentees – Benteke / Henderson / Firmino – as well as Danny Ings and Joe Gomez who will miss the remainder of the campaign after suffering knee ligament injuries. However, unlike his unfortunate team mates, Sturridge should be back relatively quickly after Jurgen Klopp confirmed his withdrawal was more of a precaution "… there is a little bit of swelling," following contact with Jordon Ibe in training. Divock Origi comes in for his first PL start. Phillippe Coutinho is also fit but Dejan Lovren – who trained with the group this week – has not been included at Tottenham.

Daniel Sturridge is absent from Liverpool's squad as they get set to face off against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, making it a difficult debut for new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

No word yet on what is exactly wrong with Sturridge, but it appears his injury-prone reputation continues to grow. With Danny Ings done for the season and Christian Benteke still out, Klopp has turned to Divock Origi to lead the line, making his first Premier League start. It could be tough for the Reds to find a goal today, with no proven striker and facing an in-form Spurs defense. Origi is probably not worth a gamble in fantasy for those looking to capitalize on his start today.
