Striker Sturridge could return for Liverpool

London, Jan 1 (IANS) Liverpool FC head coach Jürgen Klopp has revealed striker Daniel Sturridge could make a return in Saturday’s English Premier League (EPL) clash against West Ham United but ruled out midfielder James Milner and forward Divock Origi.

Sturridge last featured for the Reds in the 2-0 away loss to Newcastle United on December 6, but could come back into contention for the game at the Upton Park, according to liverpoolfc.com on Thursday.

However, Origi, who sustained an injury in the Boxing Day win over Leicester City, and Milner (calf) will both miss the fixture against Slaven Bilic’s side.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Klopp said: “May be Daniel (can play) if we try. Milner and Origi no.”

The German tactician also provided an update on Joe Allen, adding: “Joe Allen is ill. Yesterday afternoon the doctor told me we have to send him home so we have to wait for diagnosis there.”

Jordan Henderson was forced off 61 minutes into Wednesday’s 1-0 victory over Sunderland as a result of discomfort in his foot.

But the former Borussia Dortmund coach insisted it was too soon to make a decision yet on the severity of his skipper’s problem.
