Liverpool latest: Striker's private jet treatment, youngster told to leave

A round-up of the key stories related to Liverpool Football Club this morning…

Daniel Sturridge has provided a fitness boost ahead of the Merseyside derby by being available to start for England against Germany at Wembley this evening.

The Reds striker has been struggling with a foot injury which caused him to miss the friendly with Chile on Friday night, and having missed part of a training session, he will be able to start tonight.

Captain Steven Gerrard has said it is time for the striker to start proving his international class.

He said: ‘The stage is set for Daniel to prove he is a top class forward, you talk about his partnership with Wayne Rooney, well the difference is that Wayne has proven it. Daniel has got to do it now, he has got the talent and the ability to do it.’

Sturridge’s Liverpool strike partner Luis Suarez is to be offered the private jet of principal owner John W Henry in order to participate in both Uruguay’s game and in the Merseyside derby against Everton on Saturday lunchtime.

Uruguay face Jordan in the second leg of their World Cup play-off, which will kick off at 11pm GMT in Montevideo. Uruguay take a 5-0 lead into the game from the first leg.

Young striker Adam Morgan has been told he can leave the club on a free transfer according to the Daily Mail.

Morgan’s first team chances have been limited and Blackburn Rovers are set to be interested in a deal to take the 19-year-old to Ewood Park. Morgan has previously had a loan spell at Rotherham United.

Striker Iago Aspas has said that finishing in the top four this season should be a minimum requirement for the club.

He told the club's website: 'The squad is very good; you can see that when you consider it player by player. My ambition is to play as many times as possible and try to do it in the best possible way to finish in the top four.'
