Daniel Sturridge has handed Liverpool a major boost as he confirmed via twitter that he is back in training.
The 26-year-old was in the stands at Anfield when the Kop ended Leicester City’s away unbeaten record with a slim 1-0 win courtesy a Christian Benteke second half strike.
The England international has endured a difficult campaign so far, having had four separate stints out with injuries to his hip, knee, ankle and hamstring.
‘Perfect gift for Christmas from the boys getting a win. On a side note, I’m back training and good to go!! #Lfc #redordead,’ Sturridge wrote on twitter.
Sturridge is now in contention for the trips to Sunderland and West Ham United on December 30 and January 2 instead of mid-January as previously expected.
