Sturridge Has To Start To Prevent Liverpool’s Blunt Attack Persisting

Sturridge Has To Start To Prevent Liverpool's Blunt Attack Persisting

With Liverpool’s attack continuing to look like a harmlessly blunt instrument, it could well be time for Jurgen Klopp to unleash Daniel Sturridge from the off against West Ham on Sunday.

The 27-year-old has endured another tough season at Anfield, with a long list of injuries greatly restricting his ability to hold down a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp’s team. Having made just five starts in the Premier League this season, he is clearly behind both Firmino and Origi in the pecking order, making a summer move increasingly likely.

However, his performance off the bench against Southampton at the weekend showed clear signs he could yet have a big say in the outcome of Liverpool’s season.

Although unable to break the deadlock between the two sides, Sturridge’s introduction brought a completely different prospect. Coming on approximately at the 70 minute mark, he created more chances than any other player (3) – an indication of just how lacklustre Liverpool were on the day but also proof that the England forward brings a spark to proceedings. To echo that further, his tally of three was more than Coutinho, Firmino and Origi combined, while more than the entire Saints team.

2 shots on goal completed a short but impressive performance from the number 15, showing that despite his injury struggles, Sturridge is more than capable of contributing towards Liverpool’s top-four challenge.
