Photos: Benteke and Sturridge train as Liverpool gear up for Man United

Liverpool strikers Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge are put through their paces ahead of trip to Man United

Daniel Sturridge trained with his Liverpool team-mates as the Reds geared up for their clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

The England international returned from United States earlier this month after having spent the summer working on his rehabilitation from a hip operation stateside.

The 25-year-old striker endured an injury-hit 2014/15 season after Sturridge was limited to just 12 Premier League appearances, scoring four times for the Merseyside outfit.

Sturridge hasn’t made a Premier League appearance for Liverpool since a 4-1 defeat by Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in April.

And the former Chelsea and Manchester City striker put the pressure on Joe Gomez during a training session at Melwood on Thursdy afternoon.

The £12m signing was also photographed escaping the attentions of Lucas Leiva and Emre Can as he looked to impress manager Brendan Rodgers.

Summer signing Christian Benteke was also in action as the 25-year-old striker looks to add his second Premier League goal of the season at Old Trafford.

Liverpool have won two goals, drawn once and lost once in their opening four games of the top-flight game.
