The 26-year-old has been working tirelessly behind the scenes after suffering a knee injury during his comeback appearance in October.

He told the club's official website: "I feel really good. It is about 10 days since I started training and I have had no ill-effects.

"Each day that goes by I feel fitter and stronger and I am confident that my knee is strong. I don't have any apprehension or worries when it comes to training.

"I didn't rush back last time, it was just unfortunate that in my first game back I got an awkward challenge. Hopefully it won't be too long before I am back in the squad. I am feeling really confident in training so I will continue to work really hard.

"I know at this time of year, with the weather like it is, that is often difficult to get games arranged but we will see what happens in the next week or two."

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.
