Daniel Sturridge scores great header against Bournemouth

Daniel Sturridge is a magnificent goal scorer but you don’t really see him scoring many headers.

However, maybe the 26-year-old has been working on that aspect of his game. Last week, he nodded in against Stoke from a couple of yards and has just scored a magnificent header against Bournemouth.

Sturridge had to make do with a place on the bench on Thursday as Divock Origi was given the nod against Borussia Dortmund. But, after Jurgen Klopp made 10 changes for the trip to Bournemouth, Sturridge was handed the opportunity to impress from the start.

And he succeeded in style.

Roberto Firmino had previously given the Reds the lead after Sturridge’s back-heeled effort was saved.

Sturridge doubled the lead when he rose highest on the penalty spot to brilliantly head a Jordan Ibe free-kick into the bottom corner.

Liverpool will be hoping they can hold onto their 2-0 half-time lead - unlike the last time they were on the South Coast. Last month they threw away a two goal lead to lose 3-2 to Southampton.

The former Chelsea striker has now scored 10 times this season as he tries to force his way into a Klopp’s starting XI. The England international appears to be, finally, injury free and will play an important role for the Reds for the remainder of the campaign.

He will be hoping to play a big part in Liverpool’s two Europa League semi-final ties against Villarreal before he takes part in the European Championships for England in the summer.
