Liverpool and Tottenham were both in action one after the other last night. The Lilywhites were up first and despite leading 1-0 until the 85th minute, they found themselves leaving the San Siro empty-handed after a 2-1 loss. Straight after, The Reds clubbed PSG 3-2 at Anfield and plenty of Liverpool fans have been making the bold claim that Daniel Sturridge is better than Harry Kane.
To put the two in the same category is frankly ludicrous. One is only just showing shades of being the striker he was at his best after spending the last four seasons in and out of the treatment room and netting only 17 Premier League goals, five less than he managed in the 2013/14 season alone. Meanwhile, the last four seasons have seen Kane bag himself an astonishing 105 goals and in three of those season’s he also beat Sturridge’s 13/14 tally of 22.
All of the stats and figures from the last half a decade point to who the better of the two is and it’s obvious that it’s Harry Kane. Things could have been very different had Sturridge not been so injury prone but let’s not forget that Kane has also had a few injury woes over the last few years and every time he finds himself out he managed to come back with a bang. He’s yet to find his form this season but when it comes it’ll no doubt put this silly argument of who’s better between Sturridge and Kane to bed.
Despite all that, the Liverpool fans have a very different opinion and you can read it here:
sturridge is miles better than harry kane when he’s on the field. this is his moment.

Sturridge scores tonight and I’m shamelessly going back to saying he’s better than Kane

If you don’t think a fit Sturridge is better than Kane and Lukaku, you’re a weirdo.

If it wasn't for injuries they'd talk about Daniel Sturridge like they talk about Harry Kane

Sturridge is so much better than Kane honestly.

The fans have obviously got too excited with the PSG win and will quickly need to get their heads straight before Harry Kane gets going and shows why he’s the best striker in the Premier League.
