Daniel Sturridge: Receiving treatment in Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge: Receiving treatment in Liverpool

Both players withdrew from international duty this week, Sturridge pulling out of England's friendly against Brazil with a thigh injury suffered during Sunday's draw at Manchester City.

Sterling was on the bench for that game despite a dead leg which forced him to miss the England U21 side's victory over Sweden on Tuesday.

But, according to Anfield coach Mike Marsh, both injuries are short-term.

"They've both been in for treatment," Marsh told the club website. "They were not available to play for England due to the injuries they've picked up.

"Raheem's has been a bit more long standing - in old school terms, he's got a dead leg - and Daniel picked his up at the weekend.

"But with a bit of luck and treatment hopefully they'll both be available for Monday night."

don't see Neymar or Suarez wanting to play second fiddle to Messi or playing to support Messi in his quest to get the World Player of the Year award back.
