Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is hopeful that he will be fit for Sunday's crucial Premier League showdown against Chelsea.
The England international was rested last weekend after picking up a hamstring problem during the Reds' 3-2 victory over Manchester City on April 13.
In a question and answer session with children associated with the LFC Foundation, Sturridge was asked whether he would feature against his former club, to which the forward replied: "Hopefully this weekend I'll be back."
Liverpool, who will be without midfielder Jordan Henderson as he serves the second of his three-match ban, currently have a five-point lead over Chelsea in the Premier League table.
Blues manager Jose Mourinhosuggested on Tuesday that he will play a weakened team at Anfield due to his team's Champions League semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid the following week.
Liverpool need seven points from their final three matches in order to lift the club's first league title since 1990.
