Daniel Sturridge signed on this day in 2013 from Chelsea. So, how has he done in Merseyside since this move between the two heavyweight clubs?

Since joining the Reds, the now 28-year-old has scored 63 goals in 133 appearances in all competitions, with a third of those goals coming in the memorable 2013/14 Premier League campaign, where he formed his magnificent partnership with Luis Suarez.

During his time at Anfield he has also won Premier League Player of the Month twice, both in that memorable season, in August 2013 and February 2014.

However, sadly he has scored fewer league goals since the 2013/14 season that he did during that campaign. This is due to many reasons, such as the competitiveness to get into Liverpool’s attack, his injuries, etc.

Since joining the Reds, Sturridge has missed 88 games and 18 months of action due to injuries, the worst being a hip injury keeping him out for five months in 2015.

However, 25 of his 26 England caps have been during his time as a Liverpool player, and all of his eight goals have been as a Red, scoring in both the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, that dramatic late goal against Wales.

This season, it has been incredibly difficult for the Englishman to get into the squad with the attack of Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, as well as youngsters Ben Woodburn and Dominic Solanke fighting for spots.

He has scored twice in the Premier League this season and once in the Champions League, all at Anfield. His future is uncertain, but if one thing is certain, it is that the very unfortunate Daniel Sturridge wears his heart on his sleeve and has been a great servant to Liverpool during his time so far with the club.
