Finally, some good news for Liverpool fans.

Star striker Daniel Sturridge is back in full training after missing most of the season with calf and thigh issues which have seen him sidelined since August 31.

Sturridge, 25, was supposed to be Liverpool’s leading man this season after Luis Suarez was sold to Barcelona in the summer but the England international has succumbed to two separate injuries, the second occurring just as he was about to make his comeback in October, which have hit the Anfield club hard.

However now it has been revealed that Sturridge has stepped up his comeback and the speedy attacker Tweeted out the following message on Wednesday to confirm he’s back in action.

Sturridge scored 21 goals in 29 PL games for the Reds last season and his production has been badly missed early on this campaign as Brendan Rodgers’ men have lost five of their opening 11 matches and currently sit in 11th spot on 14 points. Mario Balotelli has been thrown in as Sturridge’s replacement but the Italian forward has failed to score in the PL and Liverpool have scored just once in their last three matches and 14 times overall this season.

With their main man on the mend and fighting to be back for their next game at Crystal Palace on Nov. 23, things are looking up for Liverpool.
