Daniel Sturridge issues Liverpool rallying cry after West Ham loss

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge issues a rallying cry after a 3-0 loss to West Ham United at Anfield

Daniel Sturridge reassured Liverpool supporters that Brendan Rodgers’s squad will come back stronger after a shock 3-0 defeat by West Ham United at Anfield.

The Reds suffered their first defeat of the Premier League season after goals from West Ham trio Manuel Lanzini, Mark Noble and Diafra Sakho on Merseyside.

The 18-time English champions also had Brazil international Philippe Coutinho sent off for a second bookable offence before Noble received his marching orders.

Sturridge, who is nearing a return to first-team action, took to Twitter after their disappointing defeat to rally the Liverpool squad.

The Reds star has been working on his rehabilitation from a hip operation which the England international required at the end of last season.

Sturridge has scored 29 times in 52 top-flight games for the Reds since his £12m move to Liverpool from Stamford Bridge in 2013.

The Reds forward has a new strike partner this season after Brendan Rodgers signed Christian Benteke in a £32.5m deal from Aston Villa this summer.
