As you’re probably well aware, Daniel Sturridge announced his return to Stamford Bridge on Saturday with a huge bang. Just minutes after coming off the bench against his former club he struck a worldie against The Blues that gave Kepa Arrizabalaga no chance as Jurgen Klopp’s side went on to claim a point. After the game, Klopp spoke about his striker on the Liverpool website.
“Thank God he is here.”

That strike was Sturridge’s fourth goal of the season and what a team it was for the England man to get it. His previous three goals have come against West Ham, PSG and Chelsea and it seems the 29-year-old has got his mojo back completely under Klopp. During pre-season, there were hints that Sturridge may be finding his feet again, but no one quite expected him to be back with this much of a bang.
Sturridge is the perfect option for Jurgen Klopp and it seems so coincidental that he’s come good. In Roberto Firmino The Reds have a striker who’s game isn’t all about goals as the Brazilian drops deep and provides space for the likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane to run into. In contrast, Sturridge is all about goals and will do anything he can to get on the scoresheet. Klopp will be delighted to have both of the two available and to be able to pick and choose who he needs for which game is a wonderfully useful resource to have, as it showed on Saturday.
