Sturridge's return has lifted Liverpool's team spirit, says Robbie Fowler.

Reds legend Fowler discussed Sturridge’s impact since his return from a calf problem.

The England striker has found the net twice in four matches since his return from a five month spell on the side-lines due to injury.

And speaking of the 25-year-old, Liverpool legend Fowler said Sturridge's presence in the squad has helped restored confidence to the Reds.

“Daniel comes in and straight away he looks as though he hasn’t been away,” he told Liverpool’s website.

“I sort of knew he would come back into the side firing, because I think back to the start of last year – he missed a lot of pre-season and came in and scored goals straight away, without having the pre-season training behind him.

“His movement, touch and vision are very good. We’re noticing the difference, when the ball gets to the box, we’re a little bit more confident now of getting a shot away or making the ‘keeper work,” Fowler continued.

“You’re only as good as the team around you and we’ve got to give the other players a lot of credit as well. It’s all well and good Daniel making the runs and movement, but you still need the players behind him to find the runs that he makes.

“Everyone is helping each other out; the fact that he has come in makes it a little bit easier for the lads behind him to find that pass or cross.”
