Daniel Sturridge has been working hard over the festive period as he returns from yet another injury.

The Liverpool striker has been in constant battle with his own body since the start of the 2014-15 season as seven separate injuries have ruled him out of 61 games in all competitions for the Reds.

Having returned from an ankle problem late in November, Sturridge made just three appearances - two of them as a substitute - before a niggling hamstring once again ruled him out.

The England international has missed Liverpool's previous three Premier League matches but took to Twitter to update supporters on his recovery following a 1-0 win over table-topping Leicester City, courtesy of Christian Benteke.

The 26-year-old posted: "Perfect gift for Christmas from the boys getting a win. On a sidenote, I'm back training and good to go!! #Lfc #redordead."

You'd think the return to fitness of the club's most prolific striker in Premier League history would be a fantastic late Christmas present for fans.

However, they are refusing to get their hopes up given the forward's recent history, and their reaction on social media perfectly summed up the feelings towards the former Chelsea striker.


Following the 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United in early December, Jurgen Klopp admitted he had rushed Sturridge back into the team.

The striker could be in contention to make an appearance in the Wednesday evening fixture against Sunderland, but it would come as a big surprise to see him start at the Stadium of Light.
