Klopp issues injury updates, ‘no idea’ on Sturridge

Jurgen Klopp has issued injury updates on six Liverpool players, but has no idea when Daniel Sturridge will return.

Liverpool currently have five players sidelined, but have struggled with as many as 12 injuries in recent weeks, including long-term absentees Martin Skrtel and Divock Origi.

Klopp has confirmed that Dejan Lovren will not be available to face Manchester United on Sunday, but has more positive news with regards to four other players.

Captain Jordan Henderson has recently made his return to first-team action after suffering a couple of knocks, while Jordon Ibe and Mamadou Sakho (both hamstring) were described by the German as “okay” ahead of the clash at Anfield.

Klopp added that defender Kolo Toure “is still in the ice bath” after suffering cramp against Stoke in the Capital One Cup earlier this month.

But the manager had less positive news on the fate of Daniel Sturridge.

The England international is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, having missed the majority of the season due to knee and hip setbacks. The 26-year-old has suffered eight separate injuries since joining Liverpool in winter 2013.

When asked whether Sturridge would be fit to face United at the weekend, Klopp simply replied: “No.” When asked whether he had any idea of a potential return date, Klopp again replied: “No.”
