Liverpool boosted by diagnosis of Sturridge injury

Published:

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -- Liverpool's Premier League title hopes have been boosted by a positive injury prognosis on striker Daniel Sturridge.

The England international came off with a hamstring problem in the 66th minute of Sunday's 3-2 win over Manchester City but scans have revealed only a "small strain."

Liverpool says Wednesday that Sturridge has a chance of being fit for Sunday's match at Norwich, a relief for the Premier League leaders as they seek their first championship title in 24 years.

Sturridge is the league's second highest scorer with 20 goals and has formed a potent partnership with Luis Suarez, who has netted 29 times this campaign.

Liverpool leads the standings by two points and will capture the title by winning its remaining four games.
