Liverpool optimistic on Sturridge fitness for Norwich

17 April 2014, 12:53

London - Liverpool are optimistic that Daniel Sturridge will be fit for Sunday's trip to Norwich City, as they look to secure an 11th straight victory in their hunt for the Premier League title.

Liverpool top the table by two points from Chelsea, whom they face next weekend, and will win the league for the first time since 1990 if they win their last four games - or if they win three of them and draw with Chelsea.

Sturridge limped out of Sunday's 3-2 win over Manchester City with what appeared to be a hamstring problem, but the club confirmed it was just a "small strain" and that he could be fit.

"We must treat it like the last game of our careers," said captain Steven Gerrard, urging his side not to be complacent between two games against direct title rivals.

Sunderland did Liverpool a huge favour by taking two points off City on Wednesday, and they could help them further if they could avoid defeat away to Chelsea.

"We're playing for ourselves," said manager Gus Poyet, insisting his side, six points from safety with a game in hand, could still avoid relegation, "but I'm sure we made (his fellow Uruguayan, Liverpool forward) Luis Suarez happy."

Manchester City, their title challenge faltering after taking a point from their last two games, look to get things back on track at home to West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

Arsenal, a point clear of Everton in the hunt for fourth, go to Hull City in a rehearsal for the FA Cup final, while Everton, chastened by Wednesday's 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace, host Manchester United.

Second bottom Fulham continue their quest for unlikely survival away to Tottenham Hotspur in the Saturday lunchtime fixture, while Cardiff City, the other side in the bottom three, host Stoke City.

Cardiff have renewed hope after Saturday's 1-0 win over Southampton. "It is going to take a lot of fight," said midfielder Peter Whittingham said.

"There are no easy wins in the Premier League.

"It would be nice to follow this up with another win on Saturday, back-to-back wins would be huge."

Sinking Aston Villa host Southampton, Swansea City go to Newcastle United and West Ham United host Crystal Palace.
