September return for Sturridge

The 25-year-old England international underwent surgery in New York on Tuesday in an attempt to cure a number of related problems with his thigh and calf which have restricted him to just eight Premier League starts this season.

“We anticipate that Daniel will be back, hopefully to train around about September,” said manager Brendan Rodgers.

“Obviously it is long period of time out but we hope the problem and issues have been resolved with the operation.

“We hope he is available to train in September and then it is about getting his fitness in.”
