West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Pardew is hoping to have Daniel Sturridge by the start of March following his recent injury setback. The England international sustained a hamstring strain just three minutes into the Baggies' 3-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Premier League.
Former Arsenal forward Ian Wright says that Tottenham would benefit a lot from bringing in Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool. The England international’s time at Anfield appears to be coming to a close, as he has had a fallout with manager Jurgen Klopp over his perceived injury problems. The 28-year-old had an excellent start to his life at Liverpool after making a £ 12 million move from Chelsea a couple of years ago, but he has featured in just 12 of the last 56 matches for Liverpool. The large number of injuries means that the manager has had to find consistent alternatives, who have come in the form of Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
It is widely expected that the incredible form shown by the likes of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho, and Sadio Mane gives very little room for Sturridge to feature in the Liverpool set up. As a result, the 28-year-old is expected to leave the club in January – even if it is on a temporary loan move. In such an instance, Spurs should grasp the opportunity to sign the player, according to Ian Wright. The 54-year-old reckons that Sturridge is now extremely desperate for a major boost in his career – especially with the World Cup coming around the corner. At this moment, Liverpool may also be quite happy to profit on the player, whose recent values will dip in the next couple of years.
Former Liverpool player David Thompson has claimed that the Reds would have brought a new marksman in their ranks, had they offloaded Daniel Sturridge during the summer transfer window. The England international came on for the final 13 minutes of the Reds' 4-1 league defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Reds dominated the possession stats against Spurs on Sunday afternoon, but the north London club were just more clinical in front of goal with Harry Kane bagging yet another brace. As a result, the Reds have won just one of their last six Premier League outings, and Thompson feels the story could have been much different, had they managed to offload Sturridge in the summer, he tweeted: "We would have got a striker if anyone would have taken Sturridge off us I'm certain surprised he is still there! #lfc."
Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he tried to keep Raheem Sterling down to earth with a low salary during his early Reds career.
The England international is currently in the ranks of Manchester City, where he has been in-and-out of the starting lineup under Pep Guardiola.
Rodgers, who is now in charge of Scottish champions Celtic, insists that the huge salary on offer can often have a negative effect on the progress of young players. The Northern Irishman guided Sterling through the youth ranks at Anfield before he became an England international, and the 44-year-old admits that the forward's progress was so quick that a wage rise became a compulsion.
Former Liverpool midfielder Jan Molby has backed Daniel Sturridge to retain his old form during the course of the Premier League.
The England international has been sparingly used by manager Jurgen Klopp this season with Roberto Firmino regularly getting the nod for the centre-forward role.
Back in the 2013/14 season, Sturridge was regarded as the best striker in the England ranks, but he has since suffered a series of injuries which have hampered his progress with both club and country. Sturridge has shown glimpses of his old self when called upon this season, but he has not been able to create a similar impact as his fellow teammates.
It’s hard to argue the fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the best Swedish footballer of the past decade and maybe in the entire history of the sport. Ibrahimovic is a player who has performed in the best club of Europe including: Juventus, Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG, though his most devoted fans have watched him on livestream.services all the way from his first stint at Malmo.
In almost every single one of those clubs, he quickly turned into one of the main figures and the primary goal-scoring outlet as well.
And such goals! His array of spectacular, nigh on impossible goals make it well worth tuning in on Socagol to see what he's going to do next!
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has provided a positive update on his fitness after he scored his first goal of the season in the 4-0 demolition of Arsenal.
The England international has insisted that he feels as sharp as ever and is looking forward to making a key contribution over the course of the campaign.
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has insisted that Daniel Sturridge will have a huge role to play in the upcoming campaign after having enjoyed a fruitful and injury-free spell in pre-season.
The England international believes his compatriot is 'world-class', and they cannot place a price on his services.
Sturridge has had a series of niggles in the past couple of seasons at Liverpool, and this has sort of reduced his importance with Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi being preferred for the centre-forward duties. However, he has managed to come through the pre-season unscathed to date, and Lallana is confident that the Reds will see the best of the 27-year-old during the 2017/18 season.
Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool midfielder Emre Can entering into the final 12 months of his contract is not a good sign.
Answering press questions ahead of their second clash with Hoffenheim for UCL last qualification round, the former Borussia Dortmund boss opined that it is really not in the best interest of Liverpool to watch their employees contract run its course. It puts them in a position of weakness should contract renewal battle drums roll out.
Graeme Souness has insisted that Daniel Sturridge will have to change his attitude in order to become a regular with Liverpool next season.
The England international has struggled with numerous injuries over the past few years, and last season, was no exception, with just 11 starts across all competitions. Sturridge has also looked short of fitness ever since his standout season alongside Luis Suarez in 2013/14, and Souness has questioned the marksman's mentality and preparation ahead of games.
