It’s been easy to forget through his absence that Daniel Sturridge is one of the best strikers in Europe when he’s fit, and his clinical finishing against Southampton in the first-half of the League Cup tie at St. Mary’s tonight proves as much.
Despite going 1-0 down, Sturridge and co. fought back to take a 2-1 lead, with the fit again striker proving his undoubted ability with two strikes before half-time.
Liverpool fans, naturally, lost the plot.
STURRIDGE SCORES! THE WRIGGLY ARMS ARE BACK
