Daniel Sturridge says he sees himself staying at Liverpool for the upcoming campaign as he eyes regular game-time.

Sturridge is back at Anfield after his spell on loan at West Bromwich Albion during the second half of the 2017-18 season, where he was limited to just six appearances due to injury.

The striker has featured in all three of Liverpool’s preseason friendlies so far this summer, with Jurgen Klopp recently admitting that the 28-year-old can still have a future at the club. 

“I see myself staying at Liverpool, hopefully being part of the team week in, week out,” Sturridge told the Daily Mirror. “Preseason is going well, so for me it’s keeping my head down and building on that. I’m excited about the season ahead and it feels great to be back.

“Preseason has started well for me and the team. I am feeling great and can’t wait to get the season underway. We have the tour to come where we face some great teams like Man United, Man City and [Borussia] Dortmund.” 

Sturridge was loaned out to West Brom last season, having made just five starts for Liverpool in all competitions, as he found himself behind Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in the attacking pecking order.
