Daniel Sturridge has revealed that he won't be served in his local Tesco supermarket after scoring Liverpool's equaliser in their 3-3 draw with Merseyside rivals this past weekend, reports The Mirror.

The Reds ace, who has been in sensational form for Brendan Rodgers' side this season, said he was warned about the consequences of scoring at Goodison Park by an Evertonian member of staff. 

In an incredible game between the great rivals, the England international broke Everton hearts with a late goal for the Reds. And the Liverpool star has revealed what was said to him before the game at Goodison Park. 

Sturridge told the Liverpool Echo: "The guy on the checkout in the supermarket told me he wouldn't serve me if I scored so I'm not going in my local Tesco for a while now."

However, despite the possibility of not being served in the supermarket, the England international has revealed that he will check in too see how the member of staff is next week. 

He continued by saying: "Maybe I'll pop in next week just to check whether he's okay and to see whether we can move on from this."

The Liverpool ace also insisted his celebrations at Everton were not personal and he was just returning the favour after getting a lot of stick from the Goodison Park faithful. 

The Liverpool striker finished by saying: "I celebrated where I did because the fans were abusing me the whole time I was warming up, so it was only right that I went down there and gave them a bit back.

"It's all about the banter. It was nothing personal. Sometimes you get the opportunity to return the favour and I got the chance to do that on Saturday."

And if the striker isn't served in Tesco, he will now be left wondering whether his last minute goal was really worth it...
