The techniques, the power, the time and the distance of the goal scored by Daniel Sturridge in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier, has got everyone talking and praising the England international.
The player, who spent last season on a loan deal at West Brom, was almost sent to another loan deal in the summer transfer window but it took great pre-season showings to convince Jurgen Klopp he deserves another chance.
Having gone down by a lone, beautiful goal scored by Eden Hazard, the Reds fans thought their unbeaten record is set to come to an end.
As the game draws closer to its end, all hope seems to be lost until Jurgen Klopp called on the England international from the substitute bench.
Sturridge came on for James Milner in the 86th minute and it took him just three minutes to make his presence felt in the game.
He got the ball and immediately unleashed a long-range effort that went past Kepa Arrizabalaga into Chelsea goal.
His goal tonight came as a surprise to many football fans who took to Twitter to praise the ‘rejuvenated striker.
Below are some interesting remarks from fans about the goal via their Twitter accounts:
” I can’t imagine Sturridge scoring that goal” one fan wrote on his Twitter account.
“unexpected Messiah, Sturridge saved Liverpool from their first defeat this season” another one tweeted.
With the today’s goal, the 29-year-old attacker now has two goals in the last two matches.
