Daniel Sturridge was an unused substitute in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over West Brom at the weekend - but Jurgen Klopp handed the England international a start against Tottenham in the EFL Cup this evening.

Sturridge responded by scoring for Klopp’s second-string side - a poked finish from inside the six-yard box - in the ninth minute.

The 27-year-old has now scored nine goals in his previous eight League Cup appearances.

However, some eagle-eyed Liverpool fans on Twitter noticed something a little unusual about Sturridge’s celebration - if you can call it that.

Sturridge barely celebrated and, just like his previous goals, there was no sign of his the dance celebration that he’s synonymous with.

Fans wonder where the dance has gone…

Is Sturridge unhappy at Liverpool?

Perhaps Sturridge only brings out the dance celebration for the big games these days - such as last season’s Europa League final against Sevilla.

Or maybe it’s Sturridge’s way of sending out a message that he’s not entirely happy with his situation at the moment.

The striker’s latest Instagram post also suggests that he’s going through one of the most difficult periods of his career.
