Sturridge is currently out of action as he recovers from a calf injury he picked up in training, something that came directly after he was forced to spend time on the sidelines with a thigh problem he sustained while on international duty with England.

The 25-year-old , who has scored 32 goals in 46 Premier League games for the Reds since his £12m move from Chelsea in January 2013, is not expected back until the middle of November at the earliest.

However, Brendan Rodgers’ right hand man, Colin Pascoe has insisted there is no underlying problems with his fitness and that he has simply been ‘unlucky’ with his injuries.

No, not at all. He is a great pro, he looks after himself well and he has just been unfortunate,” Pascoe said when asked if there was any concern about Sturridge’s long-term fitness.

“He has just been unlucky. He has picked up an injury, which has been well-documented.

“He was unlucky in that he came back and pulled his calf. We just have to wait for that now and hopefully get him back soon.”
