There is good news on the horizon for the Red half of Merseyside, as Liverpool FC might be able to call upon Daniel Sturridge to reinforce their striking options this weekend.

 

This development would be welcomed by everyone associated with the club, as it comes just before their crucial encounter against table-topping Manchester City this weekend.

The former Manchester City striker has been training with the first team, and has even played in a full-fledged practice match this week, according to the Daily Mirror.

Sturridge has been out of action for some time now with a knee injury, and is yet to make an appearance under new manager Jurgen Klopp, who joined last month.

However, the Liverpool FC boss has been keeping close tabs on the progress of the Englishman, and is keenly awaiting his return.

Sturridge could start from the bench

It would indeed be a film-script-like event if Sturridge can make a comeback from his knee injury to come off the bench and score against his former club.

This is exactly what the Liverpool FC fans would be looking for from Sturridge against Manchester City on Saturday.

This is a must-win game for both teams. While Manchester City are running neck-and-neck for the title with Arsenal FC, Klopp’s team would be looking to get a win in this match to have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League by finishing in the top four this season.
