Reds hopeful over Sturridge fitness

Daniel Sturridgeis an injury doubt for Norwich

Title-chasing Liverpool are hopeful striker Daniel Sturridge will be fit for this weekend's Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich.

The England forward, who has scored 23 goals for the Reds this season, was forced off after 66 minutes of Sunday's 3-2 win over Manchester City with an apparent hamstring injury.

Sturridge has since been assessed and has not yet been ruled out for the leaders' game at Carrow Road on Sunday.

A report on the club's website, www.liverpoolfc.com, read: "A small strain was detected following a scan.

"The 24-year-old will now undergo a treatment programme in order to try and be available for the trip to Carrow Road."

Liverpool are two points clear of Chelsea at the top of the table and know that victories in their final four games will secure a first title since 1990.
