Martin Skrtel says that Daniel Sturridge's return from injury will give Liverpool a better chance of beating Swansea City.

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has insisted that the return from injury of Daniel Sturridge can help the Reds overcome Swansea City tomorrow afternoon.

The England international was forced to miss Liverpool's last Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion because of a muscular problem.

However, reports have suggested that the 23-year-old will be fit to face the Swans and Skrtel has expressed his delight at the news.

"I think in the games Daniel has started, he has shown his skills, his quality and his strengths," Skrtel told the club's official website. "He's proved he can help the team and so I hope he will be back in the side for Swansea.

"With him our attacking strength is much higher. You can see that in the games he's played so far. He links with Luis Suarez and with Steven Gerrard and he is a real danger for every defender he faces. He will help us to get the three points.

"He's a difficult player to mark, he's a top striker and its difficult to play against him in training."

Sturridge has scored four goals from six outings for Liverpool.
