Daniel Sturridge

Sturridge arrived at the Hawthorns during the January transfer window on a loan deal from Liverpool, and will be hoping to get up and running quickly during his spell in the Midlands.

Despite limited game time and being plagued by injury problems in recent years, the 28-year-old is still regarded as one of the best finishers in the Premier League and is regarded as quite a transfer coup for Alan Pardew’s side.

After a brief debut from the substitutes bench against Manchester City in midweek, the England international could be ready for a start against Saints.

Southampton were also linked with a move for Sturridge in January, but nothing would come of their reported interest early in the window.
