Daniel Sturridge has been restored to Liverpool's starting line-up for their Premier League crunch tie at Crystal Palace as they look to go back to the top of the table.

Sturridge has been struggling with a hamstring injury and only appeared off the bench during last weekend's defeat to Chelsea at Anfield.

However, the attacker has proved his fitness and makes his way into Brendan Rodgers' starting XI alongside newly crowned Footballer of the Year Luis Suarez.

Raheem Sterling, fighting for a place in Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad, also starts for the away side. Philippe Coutinho has to settle for a place on the bench.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Mariappa, Dann, Delaney, Ward, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Ledley, Bolasie, Puncheon, Chamakh

Subs: Hennessey, Gabbidon, Parr, O'Keefe, Ince, Gayle, Murray

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Skrtel, Sakho, Gerrard, Allen, Lucas, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez

Subs: Jones, Toure, Agger, Coutinho, Aspas, Moses, Cissokho
