3 – Daniel Sturridge
For me, Daniel Sturridge is England’s best striker and arguably one of the best in the league on his day, if he can stay fit, I have no doubts he will lead the Liverpool line ahead of Divock Origi and Christian Benteke.
Sturridge struggled with an injury plagued season last year but whenever he steps on the pitch he oozes brilliance, the delightful striker has an amazing eye for goal and scores ridiculous goals out of nothing, he also has a killer pass in his locker like you saw against Iceland in the Euro’s which saw Sterling latch onto the ball and win a penalty.
Sturridge has amazing footwork for a number 9 and has bags of skill, if he manages to have an injury free season I think he’ll showcase once again why he’s one of the deadliest strikers in England, and Liverpool will certainly benefit from it.
Managing just 14 league games last season, Sturridge managed to score 0.74 goals per 90 minutes which is very, very impressive for a striker. The Liverpool man loves to dribble with the ball and have a go at defenders and he managed to be successful with 61.90% of his take ons last season which is once again sublime.
He is an extremely quick player, and he combines technique and pace excellently. Sturridge can also be versatile as he has played out wide many times before, but for me he is a much more of a centre-forward.
The Englishman will be integral to Liverpool’s hopes of regaining a top-four spot next season, an injury free season could see Sturridge score around 25 league goals, he offers a lot to his teammates and should be a key player for Jurgen Klopp next season.
