Thigh’s the limit: Daniel Sturridge will be fit for Brom and backs Liverpool for top-four
Reds striker is confident he'll be back for Monday's game against Baggies – and reckons Brendan Rodgers' side can push on THIS season
Daniel Sturridge claims he should be fit for Liverpool's clash with West Brom after being ruled out of England's glamour friendly with Brazil.
Sturridge was forced to withdraw yesterday with a thigh problem and has returned to Melwood for treatment.
The striker, who has scored four goals in six games for Liverpool since his £12million switch, insists it is not serious and is confident he will be fit for Monday's game at Anfield against the Baggies.
"I got a knock on my quad and I'm going to get a scan on it," he said.
"Hopefully it's not too serious and I'll be OK for next week's game."
The Reds are nine points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham, but Sturridge is confident they can put a run together.

"We're nine points off the top four so it's not a massive gap to try and recoup so hopefully we'll be able to do that, we believe we can," he said.
"We have still got to play Chelsea and Tottenham at home and the other teams challenging have to play each other so hopefully we can win those home games and stamp our authority.
"When teams come to Anfield we need to show what we are all about. In our last two games we have played against two great clubs and deserved to win both of the games.
"We have got two good results in fairness, even though in mine and the lads' hearts we know we should have had six points. But we didn't lose so hats off to the boys for the character they showed.
"We'll regroup and get ready for our next game against West Bromwich Albion, which is another massive game for us because they are also challenging for the top places."
