Ian Rush: Having Daniel Sturridge back will be a big boost.

Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush is convinced that Daniel Sturridge will help lift his team-mates confidence when he is back from injury.

Daniel Sturridge has been sidelined from active football due to an injury he picked up during international break in September.

However, Liverpool legend Ian Rush told the club's website “It will be a big boost” when Sturridge returns from injury.

“It’s a massive boost. We have missed Daniel, he’s a quality player,” Rush said to the Liverpool website.

“With the international week, there’s even more time for him to come back from his injury.

Rush continued: “You look at the game against Tottenham, when Sturridge, [Mario] Balotelli and [Raheem] Sterling played, there were goals in the three of them and they were absolutely fantastic.

“It will be a big boost to have Daniel back and hopefully get the side going again. We had a good win [against West Bromwich Albion] so what we're looking for now is to maintain that.”
