Sturridge to miss Liverpool’s Audi Cup final – but won’t have a scan

Date Posted,August 1, 2017

Liverpool have allayed fears over Daniel Sturridge’s injury with the striker not expected to undergo a scan on a thigh injury.

The striker limped off during his side’s victory over Bayern Munich on Tuesday after scoring his side’s third goal.

Sturridge will miss the Audi Cup final against Atletico Madrid but the injury is not thought to be a serious one.

Liverpool confirmed Sturridge will continue to be monitored and be treated at the club’s training base in Germany.

The Reds hope to have Sturridge available for their final pre-season clash against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.

However, James Milner and Joe Gomez are in contention to feature after injury.

Jurgen Klopp’s men open their Premier League campaign against Watford next Saturday before welcoming Palace and Arsenal to Anfield.

Speaking after the win over Bayern, Sturridge said: ““It just a little bit of tension kicking off.

“I’ve done a lot of running and a lot of work. We train on the morning of the games. I think it’s just a bit of fatigue to be honest. I’ll be okay.

“I’m feeling great, I’ve put in a lot of work, I trained a lot in the summer in LA. I haven’t missed many sessions here, they’re looking after me, we have done triple sessions and things like that.”
