Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge has declared himself fit for duty following his latest injury woe during the short reign of Jurgen Klopp.

The luckless striker has not lined out for the Reds since their 2-0 loss to Newcastle United early this month, when he sustained a hamstring issue. It proved the third occasion the former-Chelsea player has been side-lined with injury since Klopp replaced Brendan Rogers at Anfield in October.

In fact, Sturridge has only made six appearances all season, though he has found the net four times. His German coach even went so far as to publicly declare that the centre-forward needed toughen up a little.

However, after watching his teammates end their streak of four games without a win by defeating top-of-the table Leicester 1-0, Sturridge took to Twitter to announce that he has returned to training and is ‘good to go.’

He did not specify if he would be ready for Liverpool’s trip to Sunderland on Wednesday, but it would be a timely boost for Klopp as his striking options were further abbreviated yesterday when Divock Origi suffered a hamstring problem of his own.
