Liverpool have received a massive boost after striker Daniel Sturridge revealed that he will return to action following the international break.
Daniel Sturridge has been out for close to two months with two separate injuries. He first picked up a thigh injury when on international duty and then on his return to training he picked up a calf injury, which has now seen him miss crucial matches against Real Madrid and Chelsea.
However, the England striker has now revealed that he will return to training during the international break and will be fit for Liverpool's clash against Crystal Palace on 23 November.
"I'll be ready for that one, God willing. It's the worst feeling to be honest but that's football. Everyone picks injuries up," Sturridge said according to the Daily Mail.
Brendan Rodgers will be glad to hear the news, as the Reds have struggled without the striker, and have won just one of their six games in all competitions.
The Northern Irishman has given more details on Sturridge's road to full fitness, and revealed that the striker has not been training with the first-team, but with the rehab team.
But Rodgers is hopeful that the striker can train with the first team squad over the next couple of weeks and return to action, as the manager is aware of the impact that Sturridge makes on the team.
"We hope so – it has been a long time," the BBC quotes Rogers as saying. "We're hoping that he can now get to work. He hasn't trained with the team at all during that time."
"But he has just gone onto the grass with the rehab team. Hopefully, over the course of the next couple of weeks, he can be out there training with the squad and we can have him back. It will be important because he makes a big impact for us," the Reds boss added.
