Liverpool striker Danny Sturridge is confident he's overcome his injury setback.

He returned to the side to face Tottenham last weekend, helping the Reds secure a 3-2 win as the quest for European football continues.

Now Sturridge is hoping to stay in the team until May.

"My fitness is fine," the 23-year-old told Liverpoolfc.com. "When I came back for the Tottenham game I trained for a couple of days prior to that. I didn't feel as sharp as I could have.

"I'm not making excuses for not performing as well as I'd have liked to have done! I'm glad the team won and I was happy to help the team.

"We've got nine games left and it's nine cup finals in my opinion. I'm hoping to remain fit and God willing I can for those nine games."
