Injury prone Daniel Sturridge could be crucial to Liverpool’s title challenge this season

After their mammoth summer spend on Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alisson and Shaqiri, Liverpool now have one of the best team in Europe and are realistically, City’s main title rival.

Following their bittersweet finish to the season last year where the Reds slipped to fourth while also losing in the Champions League Final, Liverpool had to reinvest into their squad.

After such a great transfer window, Klopp’s men got their season off to a great start as they beat West Ham 4-0.

While Klopp has an outstanding starting XI, the depth of his squad is going to be crucial for his side’s chances of winning the title this year.

The likes of Adam Lallana, Xerdan Shaqiri and Dominic Solanke are going to have a big role in deciding where Liverpool finish this season.

Another player that is also going to be crucial in Liverpool’s title hopes this year, is England international, Daniel Sturridge.

The Breakdown

Alongside Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling, Sturridge was part of a side that came ever so close to securing Liverpool’s first Premier League title.

Sturridge’s talent has never been in doubt and during his first full season with the club, he showcased why he is still one of the most talented English players in the league, scoring 22 goals in 29 games.

The only problem for Klopp is if he can keep Sturridge fit. If Sturridge can manage to stay injury free for a large part of the season, the 28-year-old could be incredibly useful coming off the bench to replace Roberto Firmino.

So Liverpool fans, how crucial is Daniel Sturridge to your title hopes?
