The Liverpool forward is yet to appear for new manager Jurgen Klopp, due to pick up a knock on his knee in training before Klopp’s first game at Tottenham.

That seemed to be a small injury, but it’s seen the 26-year-old miss seven games in five weeks.

Sturridge has made just three appearances this season, starting games against Norwich, Aston Villa and Everton.

Indeed, he’s only played 90 minutes three times in Liverpool’s last 47 games.

Speaking on Wednesday night, Sturridge said: “I’m fit and ready to go and it’s going to be a great time for me.

“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.”

Sturridge’s words seem to indicate he may even be fit to make the squad against former club Man City on Sunday.

Having a striker of the quality of Sturridge can provide when fit would be a huge boost to Klopp going into a run of 10 games before new year. Liverpool have again struggled to score this season, with the lowest goals scored in the top half of the Premier League.

Klopp should be boosted by the return to fitness of captain Jordan Henderson too, he was ruled out for six to eight weeks, just over six weeks ago.
