Daniel Sturridge tweets message to Liverpool fans

Daniel Sturridge insists that he is working hard to recover from his injuries and return to action for Liverpool.

Daniel Sturridge has assured the Liverpool fans that he is doing all he can to return to fitness.

The former Chelsea and Manchester City striker has not played a competitive match since September, when he picked up a thigh injury while on international injury with England

Sturridge will be sidelined for some time, but the 25-year-old has assured the Liverpool supporters that he is working hard to return to action.

In the absence of the striker, Liverpool have struggled for goals as £16 million summer signing Mario Balotelli has misfired.

The Reds do seem to have picked up some momentum lately, tough, as back-to-back wins against Stoke City (1-0 at home) and Leicester City (3-1) have revived their chances of a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Heading into Saturday’s clash against Sunderland at Anfield, Liverpool find themselves eighth in the league table with 20 points from 14 matches, five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
