Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole says he's ready to fight to save his Anfield career.

The former-Chelsea star has endured a disappointing 18 months at Anfield since joining the Reds, making just 21 Premier League appearances.

But the one-time England international made his comeback for the Liverpool reserves this week, playing 60 minutes and scoring in the 3-0 win over Fulham.

And The Sun reports Cole could now be in line for a first-team call-up for Liverpool's Europa League tie against Udinese at Anfield, although the match will likely come too soon for a starting place.

The report suggests Brendan Rodgers is ready to hand the 30-year-old one final chance to save his Liverpool career.

The Reds midfielder enjoyed a good preseason under the new Liverpool boss after returning from a successful loan spell with Lille in France's Ligue 1.

The French club wanted Cole back, but the midfielder reiterated his desire to make a success of it at Liverpool.

But, after picking up a hamstring strain against FC Gomel in Rodgers' first match in charge, Cole lasted just 10 minutes on his return against West Bromwich Ablion before limping off with a recurrence.

The Sun reports the former-West Ham playmaker is desperate to succeed at Liverpool, and will look to forgo a January move to force his way back into the first-team reckoning at Anfield.
