Liverpool are traveling to London to face West Ham United in a game they absolutely must win in order to remain favourites for a top four finish, and Daniel Sturridge could be given a rare first eleven spot.
For me, there was not a second of doubt about Daniel. For all of us it was unlucky that at important moments he was not available. That was not his fault, it was not my fault, it was only the situation
Jurgen Klopp told reporters, ahead of their game at London Stadium.
I only think about now, at this moment, and I trust him 100 per cent. He’s an instinctive footballer and a fantastic striker
the Liverpool manager said, thankful to have the England international back.
For us it’s good news that he’s now available. Three or four weeks ago, I was not sure that it would happen. Now he’s there, and that’s all good
the German manager added, insisting that
Daniel is a wonderful option to have but it is all about being fit or not. It is not the name we bring on the pitch, it is the player, the human being, in this specific shape. When he was fit he was always a real, real, real option for us. And it is again now like this. It is really good timing.
