Liverpool striker Danny Sturridge is confident being fit for Monday's clash with West Bromwich Albion.

Sturridge has been forced to pull out of the England squad for this week's friendly against Brazil at Wembley with a thigh problem.

The 23-year-old suffered the injury in the 2-2 draw at Manchester City on Sunday, a game in which he also netted his fourth goal since joining Liverpool from Chelsea last month.

"I got a knock on my quad and I'm going to get a scan on it," he told the club's official website. "Hopefully it's not too serious and I'll be okay for next week's game."
