The 25-year-old made a successful return to first-team action last weekend, scoring just 12 minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute against Aston Villa. He also came off the bench against Bolton on Wednesday, with Liverpool scoring two late goals to narrowly avoid an FA Cup upset.
He’s now ready to torment his side’s local rivals as he looks to help extend their run of positive results. As it stands they have suffered just two defeats in 16 games in all competitions, one of which came after extra time.
Sturridge, who was quoted by the Daily Express, said: “First and foremost I’m excited. Its my favourite game. I love it, I love that game. The feeling in the city is completely different when you play that game, the energy and everything.
“So I’m looking forward to it. In terms of whether I’m going to play or not that’s the manager’s decision but I am ready for whatever, ready for anything that the manager wants to do, I feel I’m ready to start.
“But it’s down to the manager to pick the team. I’ve had a week and a bit’s worth of training as well as the two games that I’ve come on and played a part, and looking forward to getting back into it and playing 90 minutes and performing as best as I can.”
