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’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.
Liverpool’s shocking 3-1 defeat against Hull City saw them dropping points and not being able to clinch a higher position in the Premier League standings as they are slowly getting further away from the table toppers Arsenal.
The defeat not only made them lower their position in the league but also seeing their top goal-scorer Daniel Sturridge picking up and injury that will leave him out of the playing grounds for an estimated time of 8 weeks.
Daniel Sturridge failed to make an impact with his former teams: Manchester City, Chelsea and Bolton Wanderers but the tides are turning in his favor when he took a switch over to Liverpool.

Suarez recently made his return to the first team after a ban of 10 matches from last season.
He has immediately former great partnership with Sturridge, who has been in sensational goalscoring form since the start of the season. Sturridge is currently the top scorer in the division, while Suarez already has three goals to his name. The duo have already combined to devastating effect in some matches.
Rush was a great striker during his playing days for Liverpool. He managed to score almost 350 goals for the club in two spells. There has been talk about Sturridge or Suarez winning the Golden Boot at the end of season. Suarez could have won this trophy ahead of Robin van Persie had it not been for the ban in the final few matches of the last season. Rush is confident that either one of them will be capable of winning the Golden Boot. There is a lot of danger of Suarez leaving Liverpool in the summer, but those rumours have been put to bed for the moment.
"They have got a chance. Last year, the two best players in the league were Suarez and Bale. Suarez surprised me with how many he did score, I knew he could make goals, but he had an incredible season. I thought he was superb and he seems to have taken it on again. He has come back from his suspension and started scoring goals again. Sturridge had a great start to the season, scored in the first three or four games," said the former striker, who is regarded as a legend at the club.
