Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge will spend Christmas in Boston in a bid to speed up his return from injury.
The 25-year-old has already spent time in Los Angeles working on his thigh injury and will now link up with medical specialists at baseball team Boston Red Sox.
He has played only three league games this season and is not expected to return to action for several weeks yet.
Liverpool owner John W Henry is also the owner of the Red Sox.
