Sturridge hopeful over injury

Daniel Sturridge continued his early-season heroics to help Liverpool beat Manchester United, before admitting he had played with an injury.

It was great to have the manager [Hodgson] here, it's important for me to be out on the field.

I had a problem with my thigh before the game, it's still hindering me now, but I went out and put on a good performance for the boys. Hopefully I'll be okay for the (England) squad.
