Crystal Palace v Liverpool: Brendan Rodgers sweats over Daniel Sturridge fitness for Monday's match
England international has been suffering from a hamstring injury
Friday 02 May 2014
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Daniel Sturridge's fitness will be assessed over the weekend to see whether he is ready to start against Crystal Palace on Monday.
The England international came off the bench against Chelsea last weekend after recovering from a hamstring problem.
"We'll see over the next 48 hours," Reds manager Rodgers told his club's official website on Friday.
"He hadn't trained since he got injured in the game against Manchester City, so it was a bit much against Chelsea.
"He had worked really hard to get back and we needed something on the bench that could support us and help us in the game but unfortunately, it wasn't to be.
"But he's certainly in a much better place. He's worked tirelessly this week with the medical team. He re-joins the group and we'll see how he is come Monday."
Midfielder Jordan Henderson serves the final game of his three-match suspension.
