The Liverpool striker is happy to secure a much-needed three points
Daniel Sturridge took to Instagram to reflect on a vital three points for Liverpool after he helped to fire the Reds to a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa.
The England international has spent most of the past five months sidelined with injury after the 26-year-old underwent an operation on his hip at the end of an injury-plagued 2014/15 campaign.
However, Sturridge scored his first Premier League goal since March at Old Trafford in the second half to double Liverpool’s lead before he restored their two-goal cushion in the 67th minute.
And the former Chelsea and Manchester City forward took to Instagram to reflect on their close-fought win at Anfield.
Sturridge wrote on his Instagram page: “Ima Count my blessings… Result was a wavedown, 3 points in the bag. #redordead #dstudge”
The Liverpool man’s strike partner Danny Ings impressed alongside Sturridge although the former Burnley man was unable to score in his third successive game.
Liverpool hoisted themselves up to seventh place in the Premier League table after their 3-2 win against Villa.
