Liverpool latest: Including Wigan team news and Suarez pledges future

All of the latest Liverpool news.

Daniel Sturridge is unlikely to play in the Premier League clash against Wigan Atheltic this weekend. Sturridge has aggravated a thigh problem which means he’s unlikely to make the squad. Martin Skrtel has recovered from a knee problem but will be confined to the bench.

Luis Suarez has pledged his allegiance to Liverpool and says he feels honoured to play for the club. Suarez is attracting interest from several big sides as a result of the way he has carried the Liverpool attack, through large parts of the current season. At one point he was the only fit striker.

Brendan Rodgers has said he wants to have many more European nights in charge of Liverpool. Rodgers has revealed his pride and admiration for the atmosphere at Anfield before the Europa League tie against Zenit St Petersburg which Liverpool unfortunately lose over two legs.

Reading defender Alex Pearce could make a dream move to Liverpool this summer. Pearce is out of contract at Reading this summer, which means Liverpool could snap him up on a free transfer. This is significant considering Liverpool’s current financial model.

Brendan Rodgers has confirmed his belief that Luis Suarez will be a Liverpool player next season. Suarez has been linked with a big money move away from Anfield this summer with Bayern Munich thought to be interested. However, Rodgers has revealed he’s confident the club’s star striker won’t be leaving.

Aurelien Chedjou is trying to engineer a move away from French club Lille, which could mean Liverpool are in with a chance of signing him. The 27-year-old is rated as one of the most consistent defenders in French football and has been linked with Liverpool in recent weeks.

Liverpool legend Jan Molby says the club should be buzzing ahead of the Premier League clash against Wigan. Liverpool go into the game on the back of a big 5-0 win over Swansea City which was followed up by a 3-1 home win against Zenit in the Europa League.

Brendan Rodgers says he owes a lot of his success as a manager to Wigan boss Roberto Martinez. Rodgers claims that when he took over at Swansea, Martinez had made his job easier and allowed him to develop ideas and tactics quicker than would have been the case.

Raheem Sterling will stand trial over the alleged assault of a 27-year-old woman in Liverpool last year. A date of May 20 has been set for the trial and it will go ahead, regardless of whether Sterling makes an appearance after missing several key court dates.
