Daniel Sturridge will undergo a late fitness test ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed.

The striker has not featured since picking up a thigh injury while on international duty at the start of September but could be ready for the trip to Loftus Road this weekend.

Rodgers also confirmed that Joe Allen, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren and Glen Johnson should all available for selection again after their lay-offs.

“Thankfully, we have got a number of our other injured players back,” said Rodgers. “Joe Allen is training and looking really well, Emre Can is back, Glen Johnson is back in. So that side is looking healthy.

“Dejan will hopefully be fine for the weekend.

“We’ll have to see tomorrow how Dan is. We just need to see by tomorrow where he’s at and then we’ll take it from there.

“He has obviously been out for a long time, nearly six weeks. He is working tirelessly with the medical team – I have got an incredible sports science and medical team here.

“They really focus in on his rehabilitation. He’s a top-class talent and he’ll be looking forward to getting back once he’s ready.”
