Daniel Sturridge thanks Liverpool fans on Twitter after comeback goal

The England international has been out injured since August.

Liverpool continued their recent good run of form yesterday with a 2-0 victory against West Ham at Anfield. Brendan Rodgers has recently changed up the team's formation and that has seen an upturn in fortunes for the team.

The main problem for Liverpool this season has been a lack of killer instinct up top. The club lost Luis Suarez in the summer, with the Uruguayan joining Barcelona.

The likes of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have failed to make an impact since arriving at Anfield, while they have also been without their other star striker Daniel Sturridge.

The England international has been out of action for most of the season with a series of muscular injuries. Those issues saw him spend Christmas in America working on his fitness and yesterday he returned.

He came off the bench for his first game for Liverpool since the 31st August win at Tottenham Hotspur.

He did not disappoint.

Philippe Coutinho set him up through on goal, before the striker tucked the ball in the back of the net with his right foot, before performing his trademark celebration.

Sturridge was obviously happy with the goal, taking to Twitter after the game to thank the fans for all their recent support.

Liverpool fans will be hoping he can stay fit and keep scoring goals for the club.
