Brendan Rodgers says Daniel Sturridge could face West Ham United on Saturday


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says striker Daniel Sturridge will be assessed on Friday ahead of Saturday's home game against West Ham United.

The 25-year-old could make his long-awaited comeback after missing five months due to a thigh injury although the Northern Irishman says caution will be adopted over the fitness of the striker.

"He [Daniel Sturridge] hasn't played and the team struggled for a few months, but thankfully we've now nailed down a way of working and returned to our football ideals," Rodgers said.

"The team is becoming better and better, and when you throw Daniel into that, he shines a different light and adds another dimension. He's looked very, very good in training today, he was outstanding.

"But we'll give him another day and I'll have another chat with him tomorrow just to see where he's at, but he looks in top-class condition.

"As you can imagine, when you're out for a long time, then you're just feeling your way back into things.

"In the last few days, and in particular this morning, he was brilliant. He's been really dynamic, fast, strong in the finish and sharp. But we have to be careful with him as well."
