The England international is hopeful that he will recover from a hamstring injury in time to feature in the Premier League showdown at Anfield.
The 24-year-old left Chelsea for Merseyside in January last year after failing to secure a regular starting spot at Stamford Bridge.
"I would like to show respect to my former club but if I were to come on and score in the last minute I'm going to be on a mad one, aren't I?," the London Evening Standard quotes Sturridge as saying. "I don't know if I could control myself."
Liverpool need to earn seven points from their final three games in order to lift their first league title since 1990.
