Liverpool fans slate Sturridge despite 5-0 win

Liverpool ran riot on Friday evening against Huddersfield Town to move back atop the Premier League prior to Manchester City’s clash with Burnley on Sunday, but Daniel Sturridge was the victim of quite a bit of fan backlash.

The Reds won 5-0 at Anfield, putting the already-relegated Terriers to the sword to take their tally for the season to 91 points.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are now hoping for a slip from the Premier League champions, who play Burnley, Leicester City and Brighton & Hove Albion in their run-in. The Reds round off their season with clashes against Newcastle United and Wolves.

Their performance against Huddersfield underlined their intentions, with Naby Keita scoring the opener prior to two braces from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

However, Sturridge endured an evening to forget, having been given a rare start by Klopp.

Per WhoScored, he had just two shots on goal, neither of which were on target, while he had just 30 touches of the ball, noticeably fewer than any other Liverpool player.

He won one aerial duel but was dispossessed three times, and Liverpool fans were quick to slate the former England international’s display on Twitter after the game. Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
