Sturridge has been playing with an injury, but is improving all the time

The Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge has been playing through the pain of an ankle injury, but feels that he is now approaching his best at last. He played a part in yesterdays Community Shield, and looked quite good for an injured player!

“It is good to get some fitness from the game, and we’ll come back in the week and try and put things right,” he said.

“The ankle is improving, I still have pain and I only trained twice last week. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to go through the pain barrier but my leg is getting stronger every day and in the next few days hopefully I will be able to play without pain.”

“I’ve been working very hard, as hard as I can and need to to go forward and break into the team to help retain the title and FA Cup.

“I’ve been trying to impress the manager. In football you need to be patient and hopefully this year my time will come.

“It was a difficult six months when I first joined the club, when I didn’t have my family and was living alone, but this season I feel a lot more comfortable, part of the lads and as though I am at home a lot more.

“Players have put an arm around me and I have a good bond, with the younger players especially where we have a bit of banter.”

If he carries on improving, he should be an able replacement this season if Drogba or Anelka pick up any more injuries….
