Liverpool fans are obviously delighted to see their star striker back in the starting 11 and couldn’t hide their excitement.

But it wasn’t just Sturridge Liverpool fans were eager to watch in attacking. The line-up is the first time that Roberto Firmino, Coutinho and Sturridge have all lined up together and the Kopites couldn’t hide their delight.

It’s little surprise that Liverpool fans are getting a little exciting about the thought of a talented attacking line-up. Their side have scored just 32 goals in 25 Premier League matches as they currently sit in a disappointing 11th.

Liverpool’s opposition are rock bottom and are in desperate need of the points, sitting eight points from safety.
