Daniel Sturridge may make his first start for Liverpool since August..
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has refused to rule out striker Daniel Sturridge starting in the highly anticipated Merseyside Derby against Everton, reports James Pearce from the Liverpool Echo.
Rodgers had previously stated that it would take Sturridge a couple of weeks before he would be in contention to start games for the club, but the forwards progression in recent weeks means that he’s closing in on a first start since August.
Sturridge scored on his return against West Ham at the weekend and appeared in the FA Cup replay win against Bolton on Wednesday night as his long awaited comeback to the first XI draws near.
Rodgers says #LFC will “analyse” over next couple of days before deciding whether Daniel Sturridge starts v Everton.

Raheem Sterling has filled in admirably in an unfamiliar central striker role, but Liverpool fans will be excited to see the two combine and hope that the lethal duo will fire the club into the Champions League.
