The English hitman is back, and should be ready for our next fixture…
Daniel Sturridge has confirmed to his Twitter followers that he’s back training, and enjoying every minute of it.
P.s training was class. Happy to be back. Thank you Jesus.

The 25-year-old forward has been out for over two months with a calf injury picked up on international duty with England, and Liverpool have badly missed his pace and goalscoring ability in the final third.
In Sturridge’s absence, Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert have failed to score a single Premier League goal – leaving us 11th in the table after 11 games played – 11 points behind 2nd placed Southampton.
If his training goes well, Sturridge should go into the starting lineup for our next fixture, against Crystal Palace in the Premier League after the international break.
The break comes at a good time for Sturridge, because it gives him two weeks to reach maximum fitness before the crunch league match.
