Daniel Sturridge
Sturidge could be back in the mix for selection within two weeks, Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe says.

Liverpool have been handed a huge injury boost, with Colin Pascoe confirming that Jon Flanagan, Daniel Sturridge, Joe Allen and Steven Gerrard are all on the road to full recoveries.

The Reds are currently fourth in the Premier League table and are hoping to progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a win over Oldham this weekend.

Injuries have put a strain over the side in the last month but they recovered in the new year with a 2-0 win over Hull and are looking to make additions in the January transfer window.

But Pascoe has now confirmed that some of Liverpool's most important players will be back in action in the coming weeks as well, giving them a good chance of keeping their place in the top four as the season hits the business end.

On Sturridge, the assistant manager told the Liverpool website: "He's out there training and continuing his rehab. He's looking good, but we've just got to assess it day-by-day and hopefully it won't be too long.

"Daniel will hopefully be back within a week or 10 days, Joe Allen within 10 days or a fortnight. There's Jon Flanagan as well. They'll all be coming back.

"You will get injuries at any club, but unfortunately for ourselves, we've had a couple close together. Daniel has been out, Stevie's been out. But we've played well. It's not a big squad, but sometimes when you get a tight squad together, you work hard.

"That's showing with results and it's great that Stevie has come back now. Daniel will be back soon. Jon Flanagan has been playing so well, it was unfortunate he got injured.

"So it will be three or four players, hopefully, in the next week or 10 days that come back."

Gerrard made his return to action against Hull after suffering a hamstring problem the month before. The captain is getting back to full fitness very quickly, according to Pascoe, and will be a huge boost for the side not only for his skills but his leadership abilities as well.

"Steven's raring to go," he explained. "He's trained well. He had just less than half an hour the other day and he'll be available as well. We're pleased that Steven has come back."
