Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has just spent the past two weeks in Sunny Los Angeles trying to overcome fitness issues that have plagued him so far this season, and will now travel to Boston where he will meet with the Boston Red Sox medical team to see if they cannot help get the England striker up and running.

Sturridge is accompanied by Liverpool’s head of performance, Glenn Driscoll, who will help oversee all medical procedures in the hope of curing his on-going muscle issues.

Sturridge has not now played for Liverpool since August after being injured while on international duty for England and is a big loss for the Reds for whom he scored 21 goals last season despite being out for nearly two months.

Sturridge has not played for Liverpool since the end of August after initially picking up a thigh injury on England duty.

Liverpool are desperate to get Sturridge back after having made their worst start to a season since 1964/1965 and are hoping that the high-tech facility owned by the Fenway Sports Group will help aid his recovery and that the 25-year-olds decision to miss Christmas back in England will pay off and that he will be back playing in January.
