HYS: Should Sturridge be given the nod to start for Liverpool against Manchester City?

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is not expected to be first name on the teamsheet many times this season.

In fact, many would not have been surprised had the 29-year-old been sold over the summer.

The attacker was so far down the pecking order last season that he was sent to West Bromwich Albion on loan for the second half of the campaign.

However, injuries hampered his progress and he eventually returned to Anfield to knuckle down once again.

Jurgen Klopp was impressed by Sturridge in pre-season and now he finds himself ahead of Divock Origi and a regular squad member.

So far the striker, who according to sillyseason.com earns £120,000 per week, has been injury-free.

In eight appearances in all competitions, Sturridge has scored four goals, one of which earned a point for the Reds against Chelsea last weekend.

On Sunday, Liverpool have the unenviable task of trying to stop Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side, after after limping to a 1-0 loss at Napoli on Wednesday night, perhaps changes to the team should be made.

Collectively, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are not yet ticking, so should Klopp take a risk and start Sturridge at Anfield?
