Jamie Redknapp reacts to Daniel Sturridge’s goal in Liverpool’s 4-0 win at West Ham
The former Liverpool midfielder heaps praise on Daniel Sturridge for his goal in Sunday's win at West Ham
Jamie Redknapp heaped praise on Daniel Sturridge for his excellent movement in the striker’s goal in Liverpool’s 4-0 win at West Ham on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp opted to start Sturridge for the trip to the English capital despite a lack of first-team football in the 2016-17 season.
The England striker was making just his sixth Premier League start of the campaign after falling behind Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi in the pecking order.
Sturridge repaid his manager’s faith with a 35th-minute opener when the Liverpool striker got on the end of Philippe Coutinho’s brilliant pass.
The former Chelsea striker had the composure to round West Ham goalkeeper Adrian before rolling the ball into the empty net.
Speaking to Sky Sports about Sturridge’s goal in Liverpool’s win against West Ham, Redknapp lavished praise on the England international for his opener.
“Daniel Sturridge’s movement is really good,” Redknapp said.
“It’s great movement. It’s poor defending as well. Once he got into that position, we all knew the outcome.”
Sturridge has scored four goals in 19 appearances in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool are in third place in the Premier League table.
