Jürgen Klopp has given a positive injury update on Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge was seen limping off the ground after 80 minutes.
Liverpool endured a frustrating night as Sunderland fought from two goals behind to hold the Reds 2-2. Daniel Sturridge and Sadio Mane registered their name on the scoresheet for the away side while Jermain Defoe scored a brace for the relegation-threatened side.
The Liverpool striker made his fifth start of the season and netted the opener for the Merseyside club. Sturridge’s career has been marred by several injuries and this season too, he missed a brief part of the League campaign with a calf injury.
Jürgen Klopp confirmed that the forward’s injury is not so serious, “[Sturridge] got a knock on his right ankle. I don’t think it’s too bad.”
James Milner also had to be substituted as he got a knock in the match. Klopp further added, “[Milner] felt like he got a knock on the calf, but he didn’t know exactly if he got a knock. So then we needed to be really careful, so that’s why we made a change.”
