Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised the resolve of striker Daniel Sturridge.
The England international was left out of the starting XI when Liverpool travelled to Goodison Park to take on Everton last week, but Sturridge showed his class, coming off the bench to score the dramatic equaliser in the 3-3 draw.
Speaking after the match, Rodgers said Sturridge showed what he was made of, coming off the bench to save his side.
“I think that is what good players do,” said Rodgers.
“Players will react differently. You will find some players, if they are not in the team, they just shrivel and die and have no fight.
“The top players when they don't play they show you every single day what they can do and that has been the case this week.
“He (Sturridge) has certainly trained very hard this week. He has been really determined, strong and aggressive and he looks ready for the weekend.
“He has worked exceptionally well and when he does that his quality is there for all to see.
“We have another day to go to prepare and see where all the players are at. I like to give every player the chance to show they can be in the team.”
Liverpool next take on Hull City away from home on Sunday, December 1st.
