Daniel Sturridge an Early Doubt for West Brom on Monday

Laurence Griffiths

It's international week, so every footballer is injured.

Literally.

But the one knock that has fantasy Premier League manager's attention is Daniel Sturridge withdrawal from the England squad to play Brazil this week.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge hopes to be fit for next Monday's Premier League clash with West Brom.

The 23-year-old withdrew from England's squad to play Brazil this week with a thigh injury.

Sturridge suffered the injury in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday, a game in which he scored his fourth goal since joining Liverpool from Chelsealast month.

"I got a knock on my quad and I'm going to get a scan on it," he told the club's website. "Hopefully it's not too serious and I'll be okay for next week's game."

With Liverpool hosting both West Brom and Swansea in the next fantasy gameweek, Liverpool players are a hot commodity - and none more so than Sturridge, who is scoring goals for fun while costing less than other options such as Luis Suarez or Steven Gerrard.

My instinct is to say that Sturridge will be fine come Monday. That extra day of rest will surely do him a world of good. But don't you just hate the uncertainty?
