Daniel Sturridge has a big season ahead

Published Add your comment

Much of the talk has been about Luis Suarez whenever Liverpool are mentioned, but maybe for one moment the name Daniel Sturridge should be recognised and savoured.

Sturridge, who joined Liverpool for a reported fee of £12 million in January, has impressed since his big money-move from Chelsea and with the World Cup around the corner expect a big season from him.

With a return of 11 goals in 16 appearances for the Reds last term, Sturridge proved his doubters he was quite capable at the top level, after a disappointing spell at Chelsea.

Sturridge's attitude and work ethic was questioned during his spell at the Blues, but he has seemingly found his feet in Merseyside, looks at the top of his game and is full of confidence - which can only be a good thing.

Despite missing the club's pre-season tour of Asia and Australia after being injured on international duty for England, Sturridge started the season with a bang with a superb long-range effort as Liverpool beat Stoke 1-0 at Anfield.

With the World Cup around the corner Sturridge will want to make sure he is in that 23-man squad going to Brazil.

He will be looking to score at least 20 in all competitions this season to ensure he does get on that plane.

Much of that will boil down to whether he can stay fit though, as injury problems have been a recurring problem for the 23-year-old over the last few years.

But the lad has ability there's no doubting that and I for one hope he does really well at Liverpool this season to show people there's more to that side than merely Luis Suarez.

And who knows? A top-four push is unlikely but not impossible. After all a front duo of Suarez and Sturridge is enough to frighten any defence in the Premier League. No-one can deny that.
