In Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, Liverpool have the best attack in the Premier League and one that is capable of outscoring almost every team in Europe.
Last season, the trio were absolutely devastating in front of goal, but Jurgen Klopp could now look to ease the burden on his attacking trident.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool’s game tomorrow against Southampton at Anfield, Klopp told reporters (via Sky Sports): “Could they [Firmino and Sturridge] play together? Yes of course.
“It’s just positive the impact Daniel had [against PSG]. It was an intense game, it was a fantastic game by him, to be honest, so that’s the best news and so now we know more about that.”
With £13.5m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Sturridge looking fit and firing again, the 29-year-old could provide Klopp with the opportunity to rest Salah or Mane by sticking him in attack with Firmino.
And if the German does so, Liverpool are likely to remain just as dangerous in attack whether it is Salah, Mane or Firmino on the bench at the expense of Sturridge starting.
In terms of finishing, Sturridge is up there in the division alongside the likes of Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane.
His performances alongside Luis Suarez back in the 2013-14 season have gone under the radar quite a bit due to all of the injuries he has picked up since then.
But if the England international can remain fit, in Liverpool’s current set up, he is more than capable of matching the recent tallies of Mane and Firmino.
The thought of Liverpool chasing a game with a healthy Sturridge and Firmino up front would be a real scary thought for defenders clinging onto a slender lead, and is a combination that could help Klopp to freshen things up in attack if necessary.
