Sturridge has been forced to settle for a place on Liverpool's bench often this season while injuries have stopped him from completing a full season since 2013/14.

Liverpool fans clash over Jurgen Klopp and his tactics after the Reds slipped to a 3-2 defeat against Swansea
The 27-year-old has started just two Premier League games since September and Wright feels his career is stalling.
“He should go somewhere else to revitalise himself. I’m not sure if that will happen in this country. He’s been at all the top teams but Arsenal,” Wright told The Sun goals podcast.
“You look at it and think somewhere like PSG that he might look at. I think he is fantastic. He is a super player. [But] it isn’t going to happen for him at Liverpool.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp's transfer plans have been foiled
Jurgen Klopp has revealed Liverpool's struggles in the transfer market after his side were surprisingly beaten 3-2 by Swansea.
He said: “I understand it is absolutely normal that people ask whether we should have brought players in. The situation is yes, on the one side pretty simple, but on the other hand it is pretty difficult. It is not that we don’t want to bring players in. We do. But the thing is, the players we want because we think they help us, the clubs don’t sell. It is not about money in this situation, it is the winter transfer window.
“Clubs are saying ‘No, we have half a year to go, we cannot find another player like this, we prefer to take money in the summer than a few pounds more in the winter than whatever’. So it is pretty easy. You see the situation.
Daniel Sturridge came on as substitute against Swansea
"It’s tight, it’s close, we know that, but if the right decision is not possible in signing the right player then you cannot make the wrong transfer.
“It is not as if there are 20 players out there who could make this team stronger, who are running around and are available. That is the situation. That is why I say we know the situation, we are prepared to move, but for the right player.
"We are not the only side who can decide the outcome of that, though, are we? The selling club makes the decision too.”
Lazar Markovic could be on his way to Hull
Liverpool have opened talks with Hull over winger Lazar Markovic.
The Serbian's loan spell at Sporting Lisbon is on the verge of being terminated after he struggled to convince in Portugal.
And according to the Liverpool Echo, Markovic won't be returning to Anfield with Hull boss Marco Silva keen to snap up the 22-year-old.
But Liverpool and Sporting are yet to agree over ending Markovic's loan because there is no break clause in his contract.
