Premier League: Daniel Sturridge looks to put injury woes behind him with spirited performances in pre-season games
Daniel Sturridge has struggled for form over the last few years, with injuries disrupting promising spells of football. The British striker will hope to put and end to that in the coming season after starting pre-season preparations brightly.
Daniel Sturridge is looking to put his injury troubles behind him and re-establish himself in the Liverpool side for the upcoming campaign.
The 28-year-old’s career has been blighted by injuries, the most recent of which was a hamstring problem that limited him to six appearances on loan at West Bromwich Albion in 2018. The England striker has impressed in Liverpool’s pre-season matches, however, scoring in a 4-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday that prompted manager Juergen Klopp to say that Sturridge would have a role to play at the club “if he is fit”.
“I just want to help the team win something. We have been close before a lot of times. I wasn’t here for last season’s Champions League (final) but it was so close, so close. We want to win something,” Sturridge added.
