Injuries Keep Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling Out of International Duty, In Liverpool for Treatment


Liverpool is hopeful Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling will be fit to face West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Monday night, according to first-team coach Mike Marsh.

The pair was forced to withdraw from international duty with the England senior and U-21 sides respectively this week due to injuries.

Sturridge sustained a thigh complaint against Manchester City on Sunday, while Sterling has been suffering from a dead leg.

“They’ve both been in for treatment,” Marsh told “They were not available to play for England due to the injuries they’ve picked up.

“Raheem’s has been a bit more long standing — in old school terms, he’s got a dead leg — and Daniel picked his up at the weekend, but with a bit of luck and treatment hopefully they’ll both be available for Monday night.”
