Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has dismissed claims he picked up an injury in the win against Manchester United on Thursday night.
The England marksman has suffered a nightmare couple of seasons with injury problems but he has returned of late and shown what a miss he was.
Worryingly he was withdrawn just after the hour mark against Manchester United, but the striker said there were no fitness concerns and it was a tactical decision by Jurgen Klopp.
“It’s the manager’s decision to choose which players he wants to play,” he said.
“I’m fine. I’m fit. I’m ready to play as many minutes as the manager is prepared to give me.”
