Jamie Carragher comments on Daniel Sturridge's Instagram post

Published 8 Comments

Daniel Sturridge must have known what he was letting himself in for when he posted the viral still image of his face from Saturday's game against Tottenham after Divock Origi was brought on.

Liverpool were leading by one goal at the time when manager Jurgen Klopp turned to the young Belgian ahead of Sturridge, with 20 minutes left to play.

The camera switched to the England international, who could not have looked more frustrated if he tried as he continued to limber up in case he was required.

Danny Rose's equaliser meant Sturridge was thrown into action but didn't have much time to make any sort of impact with just two minutes of the 90 remaining.

But it was Sturridge's expression that swamped social media and became the subject of various memes around the world.

The 26-year-old decided to join in with the campaign with a humorous Instagram post encouraging his followers to "Caption this..."

What he wouldn't have been expecting, however, was that a former Liverpool hero would accept his challenge.


Jamie Carragher, now a Sky Sports pundit, doesn't usually need much of an excuse to take a dig out of the Reds' Merseyside rivals Everton.

Sturridge posted the image over 16 hours ago now and has garnered over 5,000 comments but Carragher's is definitely a contender for the best response.

As you can see from the image below, the ex-defender wrote: "When Everton make a bid for you!"


Sturridge can take some consolation by the fact he was brought on when Klopp needed a goal, despite their tense relationship of late.

The England striker hit out at his manager for playing him out wide against Burnley, particularly while Klopp has preferred to utilise Roberto Firmino down the middle at the start of the campaign.

Sturridge may continue to see more of the bench than time on the pitch for the short term but he can rest assured that his expression from Saturday's game will reappear on many an occasion throughout the season.
