The 27-year-old linked up with the England squad as planned and is hoping that he can play a big part in the run-in for the Reds.
"It's been very frustrating as a player when you're injured and seeing the other players training every day," he told MUTV's Inside Carrington programme . "It's where you want to be, not in the gym every day. You want to get yourself outside.
"For me, the injuries have been very disappointing and I just wanted to get myself back fit. Fingers crossed, from now until the end of the season, I can stay injury-free and get a run in the team."
