As we enter into the international break, many Premier League footballers will be using the time off to take a well-deserved rest. This is a feeling that's been echoed across teams, but none more so than at Liverpool, whose Daniel Sturridge is currently out of action with an injury.
Manchester City recently played against As.Roma in their Champions League group stages match that ended in a 1-1 draw as Sergio Aguero opened up the scoreboard at the 4th minute of the game but a few moments later a superb finish from Francesco Totti equalized the score.
Both sides collected 1 point from the game but Manuel Pellegrini did not hesitate in letting the world know that he was disappointed in the performance from his players as the Chilean manager believes that they could have played much better and even claimed the victory against the Italian club.
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has expressed his confidence that the club will be able to start challenging for titles in the coming seasons after finishing second in the Premier League last season. The second place finish was a major boost to Liverpool, who have been finishing lower than sixth in the last few seasons. Signings like Sturridge and Coutinho have been a major influence on the Liverpool team during the last two years. A few doubts have been raised about Sturridge’s ability to replace Luis Suarez as the key striker.
With Luis Suarez on the verge of being signed by Barcelona, Daniel Sturridge is all set to become Liverpool’s key player this summer.
If the reports are to be believed, the Reds would be announcing the departure of Suarez pretty soon. It means that during the next season Brendan Rodgers’ attacking line would consist of only the English players with Sturridge being the most dynamic of them. So, it’s quite obvious that he would be used in the role of the central striker.
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes the club might as well be ruing a moment of madness when they sold Daniel Sturridge to Liverpool.
The striker moved to the Premier League rivals in the January transfer window in 2013 for a fee reported to be around £ 12 million after becoming disillusioned at the lack of playing time at Stamford Bridge as well as being played out of position when given a chance.
But the 24 year old has been a revelation at Anfield since then, scoring 31 goals in just 43 matches for the Reds in one and half seasons.
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has come out with an apology to the fans after his team failed to win the league title. Liverpool came very close to winning the league title, which would be their first since 1990. However, a defeat against Chelsea and a 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace effectively ended their hopes of a title. It was confirmed after Manchester city lifted the crown following a 2-0 win over West Ham. Liverpool went into the final match of the season against Newcastle with only a slim hope of winning the title.
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge reckons the Brendan Rodgers best tactician he has never played under in his budding career. Sturridge has been in brilliant form since joining Liverpool in a £ 12 million deal from Chelsea.
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has been in sensational form for both club and country this year. He has formed a remarkable partnership with Luis Suarez, which is on the verge of getting the club to its first league title since 1990.
Daniel Sturridge has been the most talked after player in Liverpool after Luis Suarez and this time he was seen helping Lukasz Fabianski to tie his shoelace.
This happened in the recent FA Cup match between Arsenal and Liverpool which Arsenal won 2-1. A goal each from Alex Oxlade Chamberlain in the first half and Lucas Podolski in the second half gave the Gunners a 2 goal lead at the Emirates as they were seeking a revenge after the humiliating 5-1 defeat at Anfield from last week.
Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers has stated that his club will continue charging for the Premier League title and according to him, the squad has enough talent and quality to do it.
"Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea are based around Champions League squads," the Liverpool manager said. "They have been in there religiously and they have got a lot of depth that they can call upon. But if we have the fortune to stay clear of injury and whatnot, I would put our team up against anyone. I would never give up the fight.
