Ex-Red Mellor: Sturridge is a perfect backup option to our front three
- Neil claims Dani's decent pre-season is a promising sign for the upcoming campaign
“I watched Daniel last season for West Brom. He went to West Brom, on loan, to probably score a few goals and try and keep them up but they went down and he didn’t score a goal.
“You are thinking where his future lies and he has come back in pre-season, he worked really hard in the off-season and has come back with the attitude, ‘I want to stay at Liverpool, I want to impress the manager’.
Sturridge would be starting for any other club after the pre-season he's had. He'll get minutes and be crucial for us if he stays fit. Fact.— Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) August 7, 2018
“A fully fit Daniel Sturridge scores goals and will get into those positions. He looks fit, but it’s the sharpness inside the penalty area. He knows how to find the back of the net.
“We know our front three are very exciting but there could be times when we need that different option from the bench to change things. And he could well be the option.”
