Sturridge (hip) will have a late fitness test of Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa.

Sturridge is currently dealing with a knock to his hip and his availability won't be unveiled until closer to kickoff. His unexpected availability makes him a hard player to utilize Sunday, and it might be wise to consider other options in the event that the 25-year-old is ruled out at the last moment.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sturridge (hip) has not returned to full training yet, and he could miss Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Sturridge was surprisingly left out of Monday's Premier League match against Newcastle until manager Brendan Rodgers said he was unable to play because of a knock he picked up the previous weekend against Blackburn. Raheem Sterling will likely continue to lead the line in Sturridge's absence, though Mario Balotelli could get some playing time after recovering from illness and injury.

Sturridge is out for Monday's match against Newcastle after picking up a knock during last week's FA Cup match against Blackburn.

There was no indication from the club that Sturridge suffered an injury, making Monday's news very tough for fantasy owners to swallow. Raheem Sterling will start up front again in place of Sturridge.

Sturridge (hip) is available off the bench Saturday at Arsenal.

Sturridge was initially expected to miss up to a month due to the ailment, but it turns out he won't miss any matches, though playing Saturday isn't guaranteed. Raheem Sterling will start up top for Liverpool in a game with massive top-4 implications.

Sturridge (hip) trained with the first team Thursday and manager Brendan Rodgers said he expects him to play Saturday against Arsenal.

There were many questions regarding Sturridge's injury, as the initial talk was that he could be sidelined for at least one month. Liverpool desperately need three points at the Emirates if they want to stay competitive for a European spot next season, and Sturridge is a huge part of the offensive attack that will be required.

Sturridge's hip injury is not as serious as initially believed, and there is a possibility he could play Saturday against Arsenal, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Sturridge has missed most of the season battling injuries, so it seems unlikely that the team will rush him back before he's fully fit, though the match at Arsenal is a huge one for Liverpool's top-four aspirations. If he doesn't start, Raheem Sterling could be moved up front to lead the attack, or Mario Balotelli could even get a call.

Sturrige has been ruled out for at least one month because of torn hip muscle, the Daily Mirror reports.

Sturridge suffered the injury during last Sunday's loss to Manchester United, and he was ruled out for England duty due to the ailment. However, further scans showed the severity of the injury, which comes at a terrible time for Liverpool, who will be without Martin Sktrel and Steven Gerrard for the next three games. Mario Balotelli could get Premier League starts during Sturridge's absence, though Raheem Sterling could be moved further up the pitch.

Sturridge is out of the England squad for two upcoming matches over the international break after picking up an injury during Sunday's match against Manchester United, the FA announced Monday. The BBC is reporting that the issue is to his hip.

Sturridge reportedly had scans on his hip that showed the severity of the injury, and with his past injury issues this season, there was little reason to force him to play over the break.
