Daniel Sturridge says he hopes to return to the Liverpool first team for their next fixture away at Crystal Palace.

Sturridge has missed 14 matches for the Reds in all competitions, making his last appearance in the 0-3 win over Tottenham on August 31.

He has been sorely missed by Brendan Rodgers side, who have suffered seven defeats in his absence, whilst fellow strikers Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini are yet to score in the Premier League.

“I’ll be ready for that one, God willing,” Sturridge told BT Sport when asked if he’d be fit for the match aat Selhurst Park which follows the international break. He added: “It’s the worst feeling to be honest but that’s football. Everyone picks injuries up.”

Sturridge fired 21 Premier League goals last season, and has managed one in three appearances this term.
