Daniel Sturridge and apologetic Mamadou Sakho don't travel to showdown with Basle
Striker Daniel Sturridge has not made Liverpool's Champions League trip to Basle after failing to recover from a thigh strain in time.
The England international has missed five matches with the problem and while he is edging closer a return he will not be risked for the Reds' second match in Group B and he was not on the team flight which left Liverpool at lunchtime.
It is also understood defender Mamadou Sakho has also not travelled to Switzerland.
The France centre-back stormed out of Anfield on Saturday after not being selected for the match-day squad to face Everton at Anfield in the Merseyside derby, although he subsequently issued an apology.
