Daniel Sturridge has shared a snap of himself on the plane to Madrid with his Liverpool teammates.

The England international has not featured for the club over the past two months after suffering with injuries.

His inclusion as part of the travelling Champions League squad is a huge positive, although it is unclear if the striker will play any role against the reigning European title holders.

Brendan Rodgers lamented his recent absence over the weekend, citing it along with Luis Suarez as the reason for the club's poor form this season.

The manager is expected to provide an update on Sturridge's fitness at his pre-match press conference.
