Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is set to make his awaited comeback against Stoke City on Sunday
The England international, who passed fitness test on Monday, is about to make an early comeback after initially being ruled out for about two months, thanks to the splendid job by the club's physio and medical team.
He is in time to help the Liverpool make a needed mid-season push to challenge for the Premier League title as they, currently, occupy fourth place on the table, only 6 points behind leaders Arsenal.
Liverpool has failed to qualify for any European tournament this season, but Reds midfielder Jordan Henderson sees it as a blessing in disguise.
"That possibly may be one of the factors in our improved league form," Henderson told the Daily Mail.
