There have been mixed emotions among Liverpool supporters in the Transfer Tavern this week after their side’s credible 1-1 draw with Premier League champions Chelsea on Saturday, with some satisfied with their team’s efforts while others have bemoaned the Reds’ inability to see the game out.
Jurgen Klopp’s men went into their clash with the Blues off the back of shipping three unanswered goals in the second half of their 3-3 draw with Sevilla in midweek, a result which keeps them top of their Champions League group but having yet to book their place in the knockout stages.

And were Sturridge to make the move to the London Stadium, here are TWO other Liverpool stars who could follow him to East London…
