Three key stats that sum up Sturridge’s Liverpool plight
It’s been a tough season for Daniel Sturridge at Liverpool.
Far from ripping apart Premier League defences in tandem with Luis Suarez on a weekly basis in 2013/14, the England international has managed just six goals across all competitions, four of which came in the EFL Cup against Championship outfit Burton and a severely weakened Spurs side.
The 27-year-old was in EFL Cup action once again at Anfield on Wednesday night, but two fantastic chances passed him by as Southampton marched onwards to Wembley with an impressive 2-0 aggregate win – a real masterclass in counter-attacking football.
Needless to say, Sturridge has had up plenty of stick since the final whistle, with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher even claiming it’s like the Reds are playing with ten men when he’s on the pitch sometimes.
Undoubtedly, Sturridge is a shadow of the striker we saw at Anfield a few years ago – and here are THREE key statistics that sum up his ongoing Liverpool plight.
