The 26-year-old forward has been sidelined, again, since picking up an injury in a substitute appearance against Newcastle United earlier this month.
“Sturridge is doing his little pre-season in a good way, seven to 10 days like this and then we will see,” said Klopp in his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
Speaking after the injury against Newcastle, Klopp said: “The injury is not that serious but we have to build up his resistance. You have to cool down this situation a bit and help him be more resistant.”
The Reds’ boss has previously explained how picking up two small injuries, as Sturridge has since returning from the operation he underwent last April, can be expected. The focus is now on getting Sturridge completely fit before he returns to competitive action.
