According to reports in the Liverpool Echo, Raheem Sterling is fit to face top 4 rivals Arsenal after he was allowed to return to Melwood following England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on Friday. It was earlier reported Sterling had a toe injury, despite that Roy Hodgson started him against Lithuania. The 20-year-old scored his first goal and assisted another for the national side as they beat Lithuania 4-0.

Daniel Sturridge was ruled out for both the games against Lithuania and Italy. Roy Hodgson described the problem as “a slight tear”, and initial reports suggested that he might be out for one month after recently returning from injury. In a strange turn of events, Liverpool Echo report such reports as ‘premature’ as he still might be fit in time to face Arsenal.

Raheem Sterling might start up front if Sturridge is unavailable in what looks like a must win game for the Reds. Liverpool lost their last game 2-1 to Manchester United, and the likes of Steven Gerrard and Martin Skrtel are unavailable for the Arsenal trip. Jon Flanagan and Lucas Leiva might be available for selection as they return to full fitness. Simon Mignolet and Dejan Lovren should be also available for selection after recovering from minor injuries.
