The Reds star has confirmed he is back out on the training pitches at Melwood, and that things are going well.
The striker tweeted his delight at the work put in on the training pitch, having been rested by England for the international break, meaning all of his efforts will be focused on Liverpool. Sturridge had been out for nearly two months after thigh and calf strains.
P.s training was class. Happy to be back. Thank you Jesus.— Daniel Sturridge (@D_Sturridge) November 12, 2014
Roy Hodgson resisted the urge to call up the 25-year-old for the games against Slovenia and Scotland, meaning that Sturridge can now concentrate on building up his match fitness ahead of the Reds' next game away to Crystal Palace on November 23rd.
And how Liverpool have missed the former Chelsea man, slipping down to 11th position in the Premier League table in his absence and having scored just 8 times in 8 games without their main striker in their ranks - they previously managed 6 in their opening 3 games with him in the side.
Fellow forwards Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have struggled to shine in Sturridge's absence, with many feeling that the Italian in particular will benefit greatly from the England international's return to the first team.
