Daniel Sturridge has given Liverpool a big boost after the striker returned to full training on Wednesday, Daily Star reports.
The England international sustained a thigh problem back in September and the Reds have struggled due to his absence.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers thought Sturridge would be available a month ago, but sadly the former Chelsea ace picked up a calf strain on his first day back in training.
Fortunately, Rodgers has finally received some good news after Sturridge tweeted he underwent a full training session.
P.s training was class. Happy to be back. Thank you Jesus.

If the 25-year-old can continue his recovery, then Sturridge will be in line to face Crystal Palace when the Premier League kicks off after the international break.
Meanwhile team-mate Raheem Sterling – on duty with the England squad – is set to extend his current Liverpool contract with a new lucrative deal.
Negotiations have already begun but it the 19-year-old is looking to stay at Anfield for next five years and win trophies along the way.
