Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has praised England teammate Daniel Sturridge after an outstanding start with Liverpool in this season's Premier league campaign.
The Liverpool striker has hit great heights scoring three winning goals in three games for the Reds. And, the long serving United player hailed the 24 year old forwards talent.
Reported in The Daily Express, Carrick said: "He has started the season very well but that is no surprise.
"He has so much ability and so much talent. He has had a good run of games since he has been at Liverpool. He has done ever so well.
"We have some real attacking options now [for England], which is nice."
England face Moldova in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley this Friday and Sturridge could also come into the mix - however the striker sat out training with the England squad on Tuesday with a thigh complaint.
Following the news Wayne Rooney will be ruled Friday's game due to a nasty head injury, England manager Roy Hodgson will be hoping Sturridge is back and fighting fit ahead of the qualifier.
The Liverpool hit-man will have almost constant treatment in a bid to be fit. Hodgson faces an anxious wait to see how he responds.
