Daniel Sturridge is likely to be fit to face Tottenham this weekend, according to assistant manager Colin Pascoe.

The former Chelsea and Manchester City striker made an immediate impact upon arriving at Anfield in January, scoring in his first three games for the club.

However thigh and hamstring injuries have hampered his progress on Merseyside, and the 23-year-old hasn’t played since Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Swansea on February 17.

However Pascoe confirmed there is light at the end of the tunnel for Sturridge, who is in contention to play against Spurs at Anfield.

"He's looking good," he told Liverpool's official website. "It was his first day training today and he has trained well. He will be available for Sunday.

"Everyone seems fit and raring to go and we can't wait for Sunday."

Tottenham face a tough task in recovering from their Europa League last-16  tie against Inter Milan tonight before the trip to Liverpool, who were knocked out of the competition by Zenit. St. Petersburg in the last round.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who is expected to sit out the clash at White Hart Lane with Brad Friedel stepping in between the posts, believes Liverpool will prove to be a tougher test of Spurs’ potential than north London rivals Arsenal, who they defeated 2-1 on Sunday.

“Liverpool are playing maybe the best football in the Premier League at this moment,” he said.

"They proved that in their last game against Wigan. It will be a very difficult game but very exciting game in Anfield.
