“I’m fit and ready to go and it’s going to be a great time for me,” the 26-year-old said, reported in the Echo.
“It’s been great under the new manager. I’ve been back training for the past couple of days and I was training when he first arrived.
“It’s an exciting time to be at the club and I’m enjoying working with him and the style of football. It’s important for us to understand what he wants us to do.
“I was on the outside but it was great to see the boys win at Chelsea,” he added.
“We had a disappointing result last time out against Palace but it’s important to move on.
“The Premier League is the best league in the world in terms of competitiveness. There are teams up there this season you wouldn’t have expected.
“It’s up for grabs this season, there isn’t a real favourite. It will come down to who can be the most consistent.”
It’s getting to the point now that we can’t really make plans to include Sturridge in our first team until he enjoys a consistent run of matches in the side.
If he manages that, Klopp can start formulating a plan to include the Englishman, Christian Benteke, Coutinho and Roberto Firmino in the same side.
