The 27-year-old joined his team-mates earlier this week despite already feeling unwell.

And he will now return to England on Friday after his condition failed to improve, with the rest of the squad due to travel back from Spain on Sunday.

With FA Cup ties being played this weekend, Liverpool and Sturridge have a break from football having been knocked out by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the previous round.
