Rodgers keen to protect Sturridge

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says the club must be careful not to "break" Daniel Sturridge as he continues to work back towards full fitness.

The striker scored twice in Saturday's 3-2 win over Aston Villa - his second appearance of the season since a hip injury suffered in April.

Rodgers also confirms that Sturridge will not be involved in Liverpool's Europa League tie against FC Sion, with the Merseyside derby coming up on Sunday.
