Liverpool boss drops BIG HINT at star return

Liverpool chief Brendan Rodgers has dropped a major hint that Daniel Sturridge could make his long-awaited return from injury against QPR on Sunday.

The England international missed all of the Reds’ September fixtures after picking up thigh strain while away on international duty and was recently, controversially, left out of the Three Lions’ squad for the EURO 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia.

While Roy Hodgson’s men were away picking up maximum points, Sturridge has been recovering at Melwood and is understood to have been in full training following the problem.

Although he stopped short of revealing that his star striker will be involved against rock-bottom QPR, Rodgers confirmed that the prolific marksman is recovering well thanks to the Merseysiders’ medical team:

“We’ll have to see where he is at tomorrow and go from there. He’s been out a long time, nearly six weeks. I must give credit to our medical team,” he is quoted by Sky Sports.

“Daniel has made us a real threat and when you take him out of the team the model of your game is different.

“But when he is playing he is one of the top European strikers. It’s important for him to be playing games.”

Midfield duo Joe Allen and Emre Can – who were injured during the same international break as Sturridge – are also set to return.
