Daniel Sturridge says he “can’t wait” to make his Liverpool return following a thigh injury.

The Reds forward hasn’t featured for the Merseyside outfit since a 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur after picking up the problem on international duty.

Liverpool have struggled in the absence of Sturridge, suffering back-to-back defeats by Aston Villa and West Ham United since the striker’s injury blow.

And the 25-year-old, who scored 21 goals in 29 Premier League appearances last season, is itching to make his return to Brendan Rodgers’s first-team.

Liverpool manager Rodgers admitted the Reds aren’t performing at an acceptable level after their 3-1 loss to the Hammers at Upton Park on Saturday.

“Overall we never showed the composure that is related to this team. We didn’t start well,” Rodgers told BBC Sport.

“It was disappointing. We knew this would be a tough game but we were 2-0 down before we started. I thought we reacted well but we were risking the game at the end and unfortunately for us it was a day of too many mistakes.

“We’re nowhere near the levels we expect to be at. The expectancy is raised for us after the last few seasons but at this moment in time we are not there. We will continue to work hard. We’ll look to bounce back.”
