Sturridge in line to face Hammers


?Daniel Sturridge is in line to return to the Liverpool team for Tuesday's FA Cup fourth round replay against West Ham.

Sturridge has not featured for Liverpool since the 2-0 defeat at Newcastle on December 6 due to an ongoing hamstring problem, but he was named on the bench for Saturday's 2-2 draw with Sunderland.

With a place in the fifth round up for grabs manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the striker could feature against West Ham, while Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi are also in contention.

"Daniel was fit enough to be on the bench on Saturday and was impressive on Friday in training," Klopp said.

"I hope to have Divock and Philippe Coutinho in the squad tomorrow.

"It is complicated because extra-time is possible. They can't all start together because then we have to make three changes."

Klopp missed the draw with Sunderland after undergoing surgery to remove his appendix, but he is expected to be in the dugout when his side visit Upton Park on Tuesday.

"I feel good. A lot of people have had this before. I had one not too good night but I feel good," he said.

Klopp fell ill prior to the game against Sunderland but insists he is fit to return for the FA Cup tie.

"Our doc said I should go to hospital, I was not too sure, but the surgeon was great - and he was a season ticket holder, so missed the game too," the German stated.

"I am fit and healthy otherwise I wouldn't be here."
