      Great to see Daniel score and shut up his critics. If he can stay fit he will be huge for us this season.

      Again done what was asked of him. Could have had another goal but none the less set us on our way well.

      Only the most cynical would say he is not an asset to the team.

      It’s exactly one of the reasons I said we should have kept him for last seasons run in and loaned out Ings instead...got shouted down for that opinion though by one or two people. Whether people like it or not, regardless of his injuries, he’s an out and out goal scorer who’s capable of changing the outcome of a game.
      This season so far though, he’s really showing how much he’s improved in terms of his ball retention though; before he’d drop deep to try and run with it but since pre-season he’s showed he can drop deep and pick a pass or hold it up well and win us a free kick when there isn’t much on for him.

      The goal scoring and instincts of a striker are still there alas what made him frightening for defenders his pace seems to have complete gone.

      He is a clever player though and is great at holding up play, winning free kicks and seems to added a bit to his game by dropping deep and trying to pick out one of the forward players.

      If he can stay fit he will score goals in this team as he is still our second best striker.

      I'm still amazed at how good his close control is. It's a joy to watch him dance around defenders with the ball. Now when he comes up against a team that will try to beat him up, his game will wane a little bit, needs to be playing against teams that will actually play football and not bully ball.

      All that said, thought he did his job well and pressed smartly and defended pretty well when needed. I hope he has a great season and can stay healthy, for his sake even more than ours. He's taken a lot of crap, it would be nice to see him get the chance to show who he feels he should be.

      It is a fact that Sturridge plays a very different game to Firmino. Mane and Salah are not used to playing with Sturridge. They are used to the Firmino-player. Tonight you could see that the movement from Sturridge was not getting picked up by the other two, and he was struggling to get into the game at the start. There was also a late opportunity where he attempted to bend it from the edge of the box and it went well wide. Salah and Mane looked mad at him. Don't they know that is his game? He usually tries several of those shots before he gets it right.

      I couldn't agree with this analysis more...
      From what I have seen this season Sturrigde plays better when playing with Shaqiri. Their style compliments one another.

      That is why i feel is you will not see the best of Sturrigde until he is given a start with Shaqiri, and why also you will not see the best of Shaqiri.

       It reminds me of the Berbatov/ Keane partnership for Tottenham, and why when we sign Keane we could not get that same level of play from him...Yes some will say that he play very well for Leeds, but again it was a different style of play...
      Look how much our style of play has change under Klopp...

      People will put it down to the club being too big for them when maybe it is as simple as they are teamed with the wrong strike partners or have the wrong set of players around them to get the best out of them

      Wages, constant surgery/doctors fees. No stilability in team and just total frustration as a fan. Can't even see him scoring 10 goals. Said time and time again his quality is there for all to see but you just know when he gets tackled you cringe at the thought how long is he out this time. Owners should cash in soon as possible.

      Still counting mate. 4 goals by end of September.. with hardly any game time.  ;D

      Another arkive man.  :lmao: Nothing changed, his class never in doubt like I've said many times. Being a bench warmer even he should struggle to get injured coming on for 5 mins.  ;D Great goal though.

      I'm happy for the goal and would like to say thank you to Sturridge.  As I'm complain a lot in recent few years about the club not sell him only reason I never believe he will fully recover his fitness and play many games. Now he's fit for some long time and hope that continue. Here I'm happy to back him to the great he deserve and wishes him the best of his health and help us to the success.

      We still have that Sturridge. Agreed, he's lost some pace.. but he can still go quick, he's got the skills, and the unbelievable scoring ability.

      What he needs is game time. All pre-season he was constantly talking about "minutes", and its true. He knows it. He wants it.

      Give him game time, and we will see his confidence surge, and his skill and goals will flow. What he has now is a bit part role, a few minutes here and there, a run out in a B team... it's just not enough. Sadly, I'm not convinced he will get it.

      Sturridge will get one run (maybe a start in an important match), and he will be quickly criticised for failing to score, or he will get taken off again part way through.

      Would you play Sturridge week in, week out like how Firmino did for us last season? Would you not be concerned about his fitness?

      I personally wouldn't get carried away and keep him as a backup player throughout the season regardless of how well he plays or not.

      In fairness, he did start the game against PSG and I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts against Napoli on Wednesday.

      Regarding his goal, really unusual technique to hit across goal with that kind of finesse. He hit the bar with a very similar kind of shot in the closing stages of the cup tie against Chelsea. Expect to see a few more of those throughout the season.

      I see him as a different player now. Not one who is going to tear away on the counter like Salah and Mane anymore.

      His strength these days is a little bit deeper playing little passes or dribbling across the opponents defence with his tight ball control and dragging them out of positions.

      From there he can shoot or play people in.

      He still gets in the box when the ball goes wide and he still has those instincts to score goals. He still has a little burst over short distances that can earn him time to get a shot off.

      He's a good option and I'm glad we have him. Sometimes running fast doesn't quite cut it and he has some guile that is very welcome from off the bench.
