Liverpool have received a double injury boost ahead of their crucial clash against top four rivals Arsenal.

Brendan Rodgers has delivered positive news regarding Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana, who could both be available for the game against the Gunners on Saturday.

The English duo had pulled out of the Three Lions games against Lithuania and Italy with thigh and groin injuries respectively, but they seem to have recovered in time for what could be the Reds' most important clash of the season.

Reports suggested that the former Chelsea striker could be sidelined for up to a month following his latest injury setback and was also being urged to play through the pain barrier by the manager as he understands that a victory could push the Merseyside club back in the mix for a place in the top four.

But the Northern Irishman has revealed that the striker took part in a first-team training session and will be available for the weekend.

"Dan [Sturridge] trained with the team today," Rodgers said, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

"It was his first day back in so he wasn't as sharp as he would want to be but he's back training with the team and should be fine for the weekend," the former Swansea City boss confirmed.

On the other hand, Lallana, who suffered a groin injury during Liverpool's loss against Manchester United had been training away from the first-team, but the manager believes that he will be back with the team on Friday and would be a possibility for the weekend.

"We're waiting on Adam. He's outside working but he didn't train with the team. There is a chance he could train with the team on Friday and be available for the weekend," the 42-year-old manager added.

Apart from the above mentioned duo, Lucas Leiva is also fit after returning from a groin injury that has kept him out for the last 10 games, and could start ahead of Joe Allen alongside Jordan Henderson at the heart of the Reds midfield.

"Jordan Henderson is back in and Lucas Leiva is back fit and available to come in from the start. The squad is good," Rodgers concluded.
