Striker to miss cup clash
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be without Daniel Sturridge for the clash with Zenit St Petersburg as he is ineligible.
Sturridge was carrying a thigh injury which kept him out of the home defeat to West Brom on Monday and he may not have played anyway but he has already played in Europe for Chelsea this season.
New signing Philippe Coutinho has also played for Inter Milan in the competition, so he is not eligible either but those two apart Rodgers has gone with his strongest squad, with Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Jose Reina and Jamie Carragher all included along with youngsters Conor Coady and Suso.
