Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge has revealed on his official Twitter account that he is fit to face Sunderland on Wednesday night.

The Englishman picked up yet another injury during the club's 2-0 defeat away to Newcastle earlier this month, complaining about a hamstring strain shortly after coming off the bench.

Jurgen Klopp labelled Sturridge's festive period as a 'little pre-season' training scheme to get him into full fitness, and now the striker has declared himself fit to return.

After watching Liverpool beat Leicester 1-0 on Boxing Day, he tweeted: "Perfect gift for Christmas from the boys getting a win. On a side note I'm back training and good to go!!"

During his absence, Liverpool have been forced to rely upon Belgian duo Christian Benteke and Divock Origi.

The former netted the winner for Klopp's side against the Foxes, though it remains the case Liverpool look far more potent and dangerous with the pace and trickery of Sturridge.

And after missing more games for Liverpool than played, it appears the former Chelsea man is set to return and shake off his recurring injury woes.

With next summer's European Championships fast approaching, Roy Hodgson and England will be hopeful their clinical striker can re-establish himself and rediscover his goalscoring form.

It's unlikely Sturridge will start against the Black Cats - he might not even feature - with it vital Klopp slowly introduces the 26-year-old back into the frame.
