Liverpool striker Christian Benteke could be fit and ready for the showdown against Manchester united at Old Trafford.

Daniel Sturridge was suppose to return to action against the red devils until it was confirmed that he wouldn’t be available due to the fact that he is still far from full fitness and he is still training alone.

Liverpool are desperately in need of any of their sharpest strikers with the crunchy fixtures they will be facing this month and with the Europa League also around the corner.

It is a good news for liverpool fans that the £32.5 million man is back in contention for the game against arch rivals United and the speculation about how he will fare as well as continuing to be a force in the Reds attack.

Benteke has not disappointed since putting on the famous Anfield No 9 jersey, and with the return of Daniel Sturridge, we may soon see another lethal partnership between them as the season progress.
