Daniel Sturridge can rescue Liverpool’s season, says Raheem Sterling
Raheem Sterling reckons Daniel Sturridge's return will provide Liverpool with massive boost
Raheem Sterling is hoping the return of Daniel Sturridge can transform Liverpool’s season.
The Reds are languishing in tenth place after a 2-1 defeat by leaders Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday.
“We have missed him and the more quality players you have fit and available the better
Sturridge should be available after the international break following his recovery from thigh and calf injuries.
And Liverpool forward Sterling says the striker’s return will provide Brendan Rodgers’s side with a massive boost.
“It will be a massive boost to have Daniel back playing,” Sterling told the ECHO.
“We have missed him and the more quality players you have fit and available the better.
“He gives us that threat in the box and he scores goals. We’re all really looking forward to having him back in the team.
“After a defeat you usually want the next game to come along fast but I think having this break now can help us.
“We need to get going after the international break and start winning games to turn this around.
“Losing hurts, especially losing a big game at home. Every team goes through sticky patches but I’m sure we’ll start climbing the table soon.”
Sturridge scored 21 goals in 29 Premier League games last season.
