However, they have lost just one game out of six on home turf this season, while the Reds have failed to grab a victory in their last three matches on the road having recorded two draws and a defeat.
Brendan Rodgers's men remain four points behind table-toppers Arsenal, and they could be seven points off the pace by the time Sunday's afternoon clash comes around as the Gunners take on Cardiff City on Saturday.
Both players are expected to start this weekend, despite Sturridge being demoted to the bench before rescuing a point for Liverpool in their 3-3 draw with Everton last weekend.
For the home side, who are trying to avoid three defeats on the bounce, Yannick Sagbo could be placed as the lone striker once again, while Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore are likely to also feature.
