There was a time when Daniel Sturridge would start every game for Liverpool, but that hasn’t been the case since Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers at Anfield two years ago.

The England international has struggled for form and fitness over the past few seasons and currently finds himself behind the hard-working Roberto Firmino in the pecking order.

Sturridge was named on among the substitutes for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Manchester United but was sent on with 10 minutes of the match remaining in place of Philippe Coutinho.

Klopp deployed the 28-year-old in the hope that he’d score the goal that would secure Liverpool all three points.

But the match, which was a hugely underwhelming spectacle, ended 0-0.

In the moments before Sturridge entered the fray, Sky Sports’ cameras caught the English forward taking off his jewellery.

Gary Neville's comment amuses viewers

He was wearing not one but two necklaces, leading to a very amusing comment from Gary Neville, who was working for Sky Sports as co-commentator alongside Martin Tyler.

The former Manchester United captain quipped: “Looks like he’s got half of Beaverbrooks around his neck!”


Beaverbrooks, for those unaware, is a British jeweller who specialise in selling luxury items.


Twitter loved Neville's comment

Viewers who got the reference found it hilarious and quickly took to Twitter…

It’s little comments like this that make Neville the most popular football pundit on British television.

Never change, Gary.
