Liverpool's Sturridge fit and ready

Daniel Sturridge claims he is "fit and ready to go" ahead of Liverpool's trip to Manchester City in the Barclays Premier League tomorrow.

Sturridge, who is yet to play under new boss Jurgen Klopp after he suffered a knee injury before Liverpool's match against Tottenham on October 17, returned to training at Melwood this week.

Now the England international says he is ready to return to action and put his numerous injury problems behind him under the new Liverpool manager.

"I'm fit and ready to go and it's going to be a great time for me," said Sturridge.

"It's been great under the new manager. I've been back training for the past couple of days and I was training when he first arrived.

"It's an exciting time to be at the club and I'm enjoying working with him and the style of football. It's important for us to understand what he wants us to do."

Sturridge says he is encouraged by what he has seen under the new manager but admits recent results throughout the division show how competitive the Premier League is.

"I was on the outside but it was great to see the boys win at Chelsea," he said. "We had a disappointing result last time out against Palace but it's important to move on.

"The Premier League is the best league in the world in terms of competitiveness. There are teams up there this season you wouldn't have expected.

"It's up for grabs this season, there isn't a real favourite. It will come down to who can be the most consistent."
