Thierry Henry reacts to Daniel Sturridge’s display in Liverpool’s 4-0 win at West Ham
The Arsenal legend heaps praise on Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge for his opening goal at West Ham
Thierry Henry admitted that he wasn’t surprised to see Daniel Sturridge on the score sheet in Liverpool’s 4-0 win at West Ham.
Jurgen Klopp opted to hand the England international a rare starting spot for Liverpool’s trip to the London Stadium.
Sturridge repaid his manager’s faith on just his sixth Premier League start of the 2016-17 campaign with a first-half opener.
The 27-year-old managed to get on the end of Philippe Coutinho’s pass before Sturridge rounded Adrian and rolled the ball into the empty net.
Speaking to Sky Sports about the Liverpool striker’s opening goal at West Ham, former Arsenal striker Henry said:
“We all fancied him to score. That’s why he started. He needs only one opportunity to score.”
Sturridge has scored six goals in 19 appearances in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool are in third place in the Premier League table and four points ahead of Arsenal in the race to secure a top-four finish.
The Reds finished in eighth place last term after Klopp took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers back in October 2015.
