Tim Brown:

Liverpool awaiting Sturridge scan results


Liverpool is waiting to find out the extent of Daniel Sturridge's hamstring injury, with the England striker set to undergo a scan Monday.

Sturridge was forced off in the 66th minute of the Reds' vital 3-2 win over Manchester City on Sunday and manager Brendan Rodgers said afterward that he was unsure how serious the problem was.


“We'll see how he is over the next couple of days,” he told reporters. “He felt a wee bit of tightness in his hamstring, so we'll just see how that is in the next couple of days.”

Sturridge has scored 20 goals for the Reds this season and could miss this weekend's clash with relegation-threatened Norwich — with captain Steven Gerrard imploring his side to repeat its winning weekend performance at Carrow Road as it looks to strengthen its grip on first place in the Premier League.

However, the Reds will be without Jordan Henderson, who was sent off in the dying stages of Sunday's clash for a reckless challenge on Samir Nasri.

Rodgers was upset with Henderson's sending off, claiming after the game that it was a “little bit harsh,” but it is understood Liverpool will not appeal the automatic three-match suspension handed to the midfielder.
