Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge gives latest fitness update

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge says that he is getting close to reaching full fitness.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has assured the fans that he is doing all he can to completely recover from his injury.

The 25-year-old has not featured in a competitive game since the start of September, when he picked up a thigh problem while on international duty with England.

The former Chelsea star has been working hard to regain his fitness, but he is likely to be out until at least the first week of November.

On Thursday afternoon, Sturridge took to social networking site Twitter to update the fans on his fitness.

Sturridge is a key player in the current Liverpool team, and his absence has proved detrimental to the Reds.

Heading into this weekend’s round of matches, Brendan Rodgers’s side find themselves seventh in the Premier League table with 14 points from nine matches, two points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
