PHOTO: Daniel Sturridge finally returns to Liverpool training

The Reds striker took part in training, with several Liverpool players not currently on international duty.


Daniel Sturridge is finally back in Liverpool training, following a lengthy injury lay-off.

The 25-year-old was forced out of England duty with a thigh problem a month ago, meaning he missed several weeks of the Reds' season.

And Brendan Rodgers' side have suffered since, looking a completely different team without their star striker. Rodgers revealed Sturridge had suffered a grade one tear, with that injury subsequently ruling him out of international duty with the England squad this time around as well.

Sturridge has now got the opportunity to return to training with the Reds, however, while other notable players still training with the squad are captain Steven Gerrard - retired from international duty - and Mario Balotelli - dropped from the Italy squad.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror have confirmed that the 25-year-old is back in Liverpool training, as he bids to regain his fitness in time for the return of the Premier League.

After the international break, Liverpool's season will resume with a visit to Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road. Previously, they beat West Brom 2-1 at Anfield in their last league clash.
