Carragher hails Sturridge presence

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes the arrival of £12million striker Daniel Sturridge has given the squad a much-needed boost both on and off the field.

The 23-year-old became the first Reds player since Ray Kennedy in 1974 to score in his first three matches for the club with a close-range effort in the 5-0 demolition of Norwich.

"He's done very well. He gives us a bit more pace and strength up there," said the veteran centre-back. "He has a presence about him, he looks a really good player and has linked up well with Luis (Suarez) playing the slightly deeper role."
