Sturridge hoping to be fit for Norwich
Liverpool say they will give striker Daniel Sturridge “every opportunity” to get fit for Sunday’s Premier League visit to Norwich.
The England striker, who has hit 23 goals for his club this season, limped off with a hamstring injury during the 3-2 victory over Manchester City last weekend.
That win, Liverpool’s 10th in a row in the Premier League, maintained their position at the top of the table with four games to play.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “Sturridge has since undergone further assessment with the club's medical team at Melwood and a small strain was detected following a scan.
“The 24-year-old will now undergo a treatment programme in order to try to be available for the trip to Carrow Road.”
Sturridge, who missed eight league games after suffering an ankle injury in training at the end of November, has scored 13 goals in 17 matches since returning to action in January.
However, he has not found the net in his last three appearances.
Liverpool will face Norwich without midfielder Jordan Henderson, who begins a three-match suspension after being sent off against City on Sunday.
