Liverpool returned to winning ways over the weekend with a much needed 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town.

The Reds have endured painfully inconsistent form ever since the first international break and downing the terries - fresh from shocking Manchester United - came in as just their second league win since August.

Nevertheless, victory didn't come easy on Merseyside as Mohamed Salah blew a fantastic opportunity from the penalty spot as Huddersfield scrambled their way to half-time at 0-0.

The flood gates opened after the break, however, as Daniel Sturridge broke the deadlock with a calculated finish over Jonas Lossl in the 50th minute.

And although Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum joined him on the scoresheet, it was the predatory Englishman that turned things around at a subdued Anfield.

The 28-year-old has always been considered one of the finest finishers in the Premier League but his recent career has been ravaged by injury.

Married to Liverpool's difficult form so far this season and Sturridge produced an angrier version of his trademark dance celebration against Huddersfield.

Scoring at the Kop end, the 28-year-old ran over to the side of the pitch, lapped up the joy from the Liverpool supporters before entering a huddle and celebrating one last time.

During an interview with RedMenTV, the presenter raised that very point - citing the release of frustration in his moves with Sturridge going onto reveal a surprise fact about it.

He explained: "That was Milly - Milly told me to do it, I wasn't going to do it.

"He whispered in my ear and said: 'make sure you do it.'

"And I was thinking: 'do you know what? I'm just going to do it' but I wasn't going to.

"I'm trying to get away from it, that's the thing. I've got something new, that's the thing.

"But they keep bringing it back, I can't get away from it! Something new is coming soon."

Will Sturridge haver better discipline than Paul Pogba, though? The French midfielder also promised to ditch his dab celebration and although his trademark has taken a back seat, his planned replacement is yet to be seen.

And judging from the Huddersfield game, Sturridge might struggle to implement his new move if just a few words of Milner secure the easy crowd pleasers.

To be fair to Milner, don't fix what isn't broken.
