Daniel Sturridge Return To Fitness Boosts Liverpool Ahead of Trip To Swansea City

Englishman will be looking to add to his five goals already so far this season against the Swans. 

Check in to Swansea City vs Liverpool

Liverpool have received a massive lift with the news that in-form front man Daniel Sturridge is in line to play against Swansea City in the Premier League on Monday night, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The prolific England international had looked likely to miss the Merseyside giants’ trip to the Liberty stadium for the live TV clash with a thigh injury, however, Sturridge successfully came through a training session on Sunday at Melwood and is now set to lead the line for what is head coach Brendan Rodgers’s return to South Wales.

Sturridge first suffered the problem playing against League One outfit Notts County in the Reds’ 4-2 Capital One Cup second-round extra-time win at Anfield last month – a tie in which the striker netted two goals – with the player then further aggravating the problem in the club’s 1-0 win over Premier League champions Manchester United in their following top-flight encounter at the start of September.

As a result, the Englishman was unable to take part in either of the Three Lions’ recent Fifa World Cup Group H qualifiers, against Moldova at Wembley Stadium, or the trip to face rivals Ukraine in Kiev.

However, it now appears as though the extra rest has enabled Sturridge to recover in time to help Rodgers’s side go back to the top of the Premier League by maintaining their 100 per cent start to the new league season in the Principality on Monday evening.
