Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Daniel Sturridge won’t be available for their League Cup clash against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

Sturridge hasn’t featured for the Reds since a goalless draw with Everton in Brendan Rodgers’s final game in charge of the Merseyside outfit.

And the 48-year-old German revealed that Sturridge hasn’t made a return to first-team training as the Reds boss gave his latest Liverpool injury update on Tuesday.

“There is nothing really new in this part [squad fitness],” Klopp told his pre-match media conference ahead of the visit of the Cherries in the Capital One Cup fourth round.

“Daniel is not available for tomorrow. He is getting better but not quick enough that it changes the situation for us. He is not in training.

“I saw him five minutes ago working with Chris [Morgan] in the gym, but it was not normal football training, so we have to wait.”

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Southampton at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday evening after Sadio Mane cancelled out Christian Benteke’s opener.
