Liverpool legend predicts Sturridge greatness

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is capable of establishing himself among the top 10 players in the world if he continues his rapid rise, according to club legend Gary McAllister.

Sturridge has enjoyed a scintillating start to his career on Merseyside having scored 13 goals in only 17 appearances since his transfer from Chelsea during the January transfer window of this year.

The 24-year-old England international has flourished in the absence of Luis Suarez this season, having scored the winner in each of Liverpool's victories in their opening three Premier League fixtures.

His fine form has led Ian Rush to urge Brendan Rodgers to bench Suarez when the Uruguay international is made available again after suspension, with the Liverpool icon believing Sturridge can maintain his prolific form.

McAllister, meanwhile, has been so impressed by Sturridge that he expects the player to continue on his upwards trajectory and place himself among the elite of world football.

Liverpool have started the season really well. Daniel Sturridge has been on fire. He’s a player that I have always admired. I just hope he can continue it," he told talkSPORT.

"He’s a player who, if he can show those sort of performances over the course of the season, then he can be as good as anyone. Then you can start mentioning him in the top 10 or 20 players in the world. He’s that good.”
