      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.

      Look at that pace and agility, I actually forgotten how good he was!!

      Imagine if Sturridge could have stayed injury free, he would have been up there with the likes of, Aguero, Suarez and Lewandowski :(

      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.

      Certainly should be involved, in the game, one way or another. He has the ability to score some spectacular goals !

      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.

      I seem to remember his first goal with us was away at City when he joined that January.  Of course the goals were very different but that one was similar in that it was out of nothing, totally flat footed, no back lift, just randomly decided to shoot.

      Watching him and Suarez link up was a real privilege.

      I fully expected him to not score with that shot. Not because he can't do it, but because he typically misses the first couple of attempts whilst he adjusts his technique to the conditions - range, dip, wind, goalkeeper.. but that one he got perfect first time!

      Particularly the chip’s against West Brom and the bitters and, of course, that tap in against Chelsea.

      I give up on him a while back if I'm being honest and I wasn't alone. Hoping he proves me wrong (fully). A striker like him, fit and firing on all cylinders, could be the difference between number 19 coming and not coming. Just praying he stays fit because, and I know its very cliché, at the moment he really is like a very, very good new signing.

      I think that if we can keep him fit then he could be the difference between winning the league or not, that kind of impact sub is hard to find.

      Especially considering the starting front 3 did sweet f**k all for the entire match....  Studge has earned himself more minutes in my opinion, but I won't be surprised if he doesn't get them....

      Agreed, right now him and Shaqiri are far more deserving of a place in the team than Mane and Salah.

      Yep they've been of for a little while. Whilst Mane started off with a flyer he's got no goals in 6 and Mo really hasn't got going yet at all.

      I watched the video of Studge's 50 Prem goals, and it got me all nostalgic.  He really was (and still is) an exceptional footballer.  Even though he no longer has searing pace, he still has a great shot and incredible instincts.  However, there is 1 moment that isn't on that highlight video that really demonstrates an area of Studge's game that I feel is criminally underrated.  Go to the 1:25 part of the video below:

      https://youtu.be/fc0e4dJ6zEY

      The dummy that put Suarez clean through for a 1v1 with the keeper.  In a split second, Studge read the the situation and reacted perfectly.  He knew where Luis was.  He knew where the defenders were and how his movement would pull them out of position.  He read the trajectory of the pass and knew where it was going.  And with one little move, he took 3 defenders completely out of the play and allowed his teammate to stroll clean through on goal.

      The vision, intelligence, and anticipation he demonstrated in this moment still amaze me.  It's part of the reason why I'm confident that he can still be a top contributor for us, as long as he can stay fit.  Keep it up lad.
