The 25-year-old has made just 18 appearances this campaign after suffering with thigh, calf and hip injuries, and has flown to America in an attempt to solve his current hip problem.

Sturridge is not expected to play any further part in the Reds’ season which looks like ending in disappointment following back-to-back goalless games against West Brom and Hull City in the past week as Brendan Rodgers’ side have struggled to score goals in the absence of the England international.

The former Chelsea and Manchester City forward has already spent time in Los Angeles this season when he was rehabilitating from a thigh injury that caused him to miss five months of the campaign after being injured on international duty in September and has revealed that he enjoys being in a different environment:

“I like America, the way of thinking is different.” he said (via Mail Online)

“You have to have a single-minded mentality to get back in the best shape possible. When you’re injured it’s important to have that type of mentality.”

“That’s why being out here, I’m single-minded, zoning in on what I have to do and it’s great to be here.” he concluded.
