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.
