Liverpool handed major boost with key duo in contention for Norwich game

first_img Daniel Sturridge 1 Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge and captain Jordan Henderson could both make their comebacks in Sunday’s home clash with Norwich, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has indicated.Sturridge has been back in full training since last week after recovering from a hip operation in May, while midfielder Henderson this week underwent a specialist procedure in the United States in an attempt to cure an ongoing heel problem.And Rodgers said on Friday: “Jordan will train today so we’ll see how he comes through that – he has obviously been away and had some work done on his foot, so hopefully all will be well with that but we’ll assess it over the next 48 hours.“Daniel has been training with the team now for a week or so and again we will assess that in relation to the game.”Rodgers believes Sturridge’s reintegration could help turn the Reds’ form around after successive league defeats, and is looking forward to seeing the England man strike up an understanding with Christian Benteke.“Daniel, on his game, is one of the best there is – there are not too many who can compare with him when he is at his level,” said the Ulsterman.“When he can stretch teams like he can with his pace and the wonderful variety in his finishing, you put Christian alongside that, [Philippe] Coutinho in behind that or to the side of it, then other players support that – it is a really exciting dynamic.“We have probably been waiting for that for quite a period of time but those types of players like Daniel, with that quality, can give a totally different perspective to your team.”last_img
