Liverpool’s season has been one of turmoil for the Anfield faithful who has seen their club significantly fail to build of the successes of 2013/14. Now though they have been handed a boost as BBC Sport report Daniel Sturridge is heading to Boston for final rehab on his injury.

The England international will spend Christmas across the pond in a bid to fully recover to rejoin the Liverpool’s squad for the New Year. Sturridge’s season has been ravaged by injury meaning he has only feature in 3 Premier League fixtures in 2014/15 picking up knock after knock. It is hoped the trip to work with the Boston Red Sox’s specialists will help kick the rut.

Daniel Sturridge spent time in the youth academies of Aston Villa, Coventry City and Manchester City before being given his professional chance in February 2007. In July 2009 Chelsea signed Sturridge thanks to a tribunal fee but in 63 Blues Premier League appearances he only scored 13 goals. After a short loan spell with Bolton Wanderers, Liverpool purchased Sturridge for £12m in January 2013.

Sturridge is 25-years-old and recently signed a new contract with Liverpool as a reward for his fantastic form since joining. Sturridge has netted 32 Premier League goals in 46 showings, 21 in 29 during last season with 25 goals in all competitions. It is no doubt the sale of Luis Suarez and the constant Sturridge injuries have harmed Liverpool meaning his imminent return is a massive positive for the Merseysiders.
