The prolific England international limped off midway through the second half of the Reds’ pulsating 3-2 win over title rivals City on the weekend after pulling up clutching the back of his leg.
And speaking after the end of the contest, Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers confirmed that: “We’ll see how he is over the next couple of days. He felt a wee bit of tightness in his hamstring, so we’ll just see how that is in the next couple of days.”
The Merseysiders can ill afford to be without the red-hot 24-year-old for the closing stages of the season, as Rodgers and Co look to win a first top-flight title since 1990, especially given the sensational form in front of goal that Sturridge has been in so far in this campaign.
In particular, the striker has been hitting the back of the net with great regularity ever since returning from his most recent injury layoff in January, while in total Sturridge has scored 20 goals in 26 Premier League games, making him the second top scorer in the league this season.
