Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hailed striker Daniel Sturridge for his performance against Spanish outfit Villarreal in the Europa League semi-final second-leg clash at Anfield on Thursday night.
As the Reds cruised to a 3-0 victory to secure their place in the final of the competition, Sturridge netted the club's second goal of the game with a well-taken finish.
Sturridge, who failed to make it off the bench in the first-leg, was handed a prominent role in the team on Thursday and produced the goods in style.

After the clash, as per Goal.com, the Liverpool boss stated: "[He played a] great game," he said. "You all see now when Daniel Sturridge is fit he is an unbelievable striker. But even he needs players to play with.
"I know about his quality. I knew before I came here. Now I know it better. He's a good player and it is good to have him here."
Klopp has also hailed his team in general, claiming that they have shown on a number of occasions 'what they are capable of in the future'.
The Reds will take on Sevilla in the final and it appears that Klopp is determined to secure the prestigious honour.
"I think this year we have shown a lot of times what we are capable of and what they could be capable of in the future, so that is really nice and a really good sign," he said.
"That is more important for me as a manager, but when you perform in the right moments like we did tonight, against [Borussia] Dortmund or against [Manchester] United and Augsburg, then you want to have it all.
"Nine years between the last final and this one. Europe is big. A lot of teams want to go to finals. It is not too easy. Now we are there and it is a great opportunity and we will take it as that."
A victory for Liverpool will secure them a place in next season's Champions League tournament, but Klopp and co. will be well aware that Sevilla will represent a very tricky task indeed. Sevilla, of course, are on course to secure their third successive Europa League trophy.
