Liverpool 2 West Ham 0: We’ve been unlucky, says Daniel Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge reflects on Liverpool's season so far

Daniel Sturridge believes Liverpool have been unfortunate that results haven’t gone their way this season after the striker scored on his return from injury to help the Reds beat West Ham United.

The 25-year-old came on as a second-half substitute following a five-month absence, and the England international scored a brilliant strike with 10 minutes remaining at Anfield.

Speaking to BBC Sport following the 2-0 win, Sturridge reflected on Liverpool’s season, having spent most of it watching his team-mates struggle from the sidelines.

“I have been watching on the sidelines and the lads have been playing really well but sometimes the results have not been going their way, but we have been working hard doing what the manger wants us to do.”

Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling scored his fifth Premier League goal of the season in the 51st minute as he collected Philippe Coutinho’s lifted pass before finishing clinically past Adrian.

The Brazil international also teed up Sturridge’s strike as the Liverpool forward produced a brilliant first touch before firing past the West Ham goalkeeper to net his second of the campaign.

Liverpool hoisted themselves above Sam Allardyce’s side and into seventh place following their win.
