Sturridge has found game time difficult to come by so far this season and it has been a while since the England striker last started regularly for Liverpool. However, when given a chance against Sunderland to impress, he took it!
He gave Liverpool the lead just 20 minutes into the game and was a constant thorn in the side of the Sunderland defence. If not for the heroics of the Sunderland goalie, Sturridge would have surely added to his solitary strike.
With Sadio Mane now heading to the Africa Cup of Nations, Sturridge could be a key man for Liverpool.
