Daniel Sturridge has impressed since joining Liverpool

The 23-year-old withdrew from England's squad to play Brazil this week with a thigh injury.

Sturridge suffered the injury in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday, a game in which he scored 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 website. "Hopefully it's not too serious and I'll be okay for next week's game."

Sturridge was injured in the first half at the Etihad Stadium but played on until being replaced in the 89th minute.

He reported for international duty but a decision was made to withdraw after speaking to manager Roy Hodgson.

Liverpool's draw against the champions came after a 2-2 draw at Arsenal and Sturridge is optimistic those results prove the Reds can push for a top-four finish this season.

Sturridge said: "In our last two games we have played against two great clubs and deserved to win both of the games.

"We'll regroup and get ready for our next game against West Bromwich Albion, which is another massive game for us because they are also challenging for the top places.

"We are nine points off the top four so it's not a massive gap to try and recoup so hopefully we'll be able to do that - we believe we can."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
