Photo: Daniel Sturridge gives Liverpool boost ahead of Hammers clash

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge vows to be back soon after he returned to training at Melwood on Thursday

Daniel Sturridge has handed Liverpool a fitness boost ahead of their clash against West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday.

The England international isn’t expected to face the Hammers after the 25-year-old striker was put through his paces at Melwood training ground on Thursday afternoon.

The Reds star has been working on his rehabilitation from a hip operation which the England international required at the end of last season.

Sturridge hasn’t made a Premier League appearance for Liverpool since a 4-1 defeat by Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in April.

And the 25-year-old striker, who moved to Liverpool from Chelsea in a £12m deal in 2013, uploaded a montage of photos from his training session.

Sturridge wrote on his Instagram page: “Soon come…”

Sturridge has scored 29 times in 52 top-flight games for the Reds since his £12m move to Liverpool from Stamford Bridge in 2013.
