Rodgers sure Sturridge will slot in

London - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has no concerns about how Daniel Sturridge will fit into his redefined formation ahead of the striker's long-awaited comeback from injury.

Sturridge will be in Liverpool's squad for their Premier League clash against West Ham at Anfield, having not played for the Reds since the end of August with calf and thigh problems.

However, Rodgers reverted to a fluid 3-4-3 system during a lean spell of results in Sturridge's absence and Liverpool saw a marked improvement.

"We are very much built around the collective, but it doesn't half help when you have someone to finish it off at the top end of the field and have that power and pace that Daniel has," Rodgers said.

Sturridge is in line to make his long-awaited English Premiership return when West Ham United travel to Anfield.

Saturday's fixture will delight the neutrals, as Liverpool (8th in the league) host an in-form West Ham(7th) with both sides chasing Champions League spots.

The match kicks off at 17:00.
