The player has been excellent so far this season
Daniel Sturridge joined Liverpool from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £12 million, signing a long term contract in 2013. Since then he has scored 67 goals in 140 appearances for the club.
The 28 year old was pivotal for the Premier League giants during his first season and formed an impressive partnership with Luis Suarez. He helped the team to finish 2nd in the league and was the runner-up for the Premier League golden boot.
But the Striker managed to score only 3 goals last season before moving to West Bromich Albion on a loan deal for the rest of the season in January. He failed to score any goals for the Baggies and his loan spell ended in relegation from the Premier League.
The England International was heavily linked with an exit before transfer deadline but Jurgen Klopp decided to keep hold of him after an impressive pre-season tour.
The player has been excellent so far for the Reds this season, scoring 4 goals in 7 appearances across all competitions. He scored against his former club Chelsea in the dying moments on Saturday as the match ended in 1-1, as the club are still undefeated in the Premier League.
Liverpool legend Jame Carragher has admitted that he was wrong about Sturridge and written him off too early.
“With the front three we know Liverpool score goals,” he said on Sky Sports as quoted by Daily Star.
“But the midfield three, certainly those playing at the moment, don’t get a lot of goals.
“So the back-up players when they come onto the pitch they’ve got to get goals.
“That’s what they’ve started doing and brilliant from Daniel Sturridge.
“I maybe had written the lad off too early in terms of his Liverpool career.
“I think going to West Brom was a big turning point for him.
I think he came back realising ‘I’m happy to be a squad player at Liverpool’.”
