Danny Murphy talks up Liverpool FC’s ‘unbelievable’ forgotten man
Danny Murphy says Daniel Sturridge can be a top performer for Liverpool FC this season
Danny Murphy believes that Daniel Sturridge could end up being an unsung hero for Liverpool FC this season.
The England striker will be hoping to prove himself to Jurgen Klopp this season as he bids to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Anfield.
Sturridge was shipped out on loan to West Bromwich Albion for the second half of last season after being deemed surplus to requirements by Klopp, but he failed to make much of an impact at The Hawthorns.
The 28-year-old is now back at Anfield and looking to earn a regular spot in the first team under Klopp at the Merseyside outfit.
And former Liverpool FC star Murphy feels that Sturridge could end up proving to be an extremely valuable asset for the Merseyside outfit throughout the campaign.
Speaking in an interview with bwin, Murphy said: “I think a huge bonus for Liverpool will prove to be Daniel Sturridge.
“He is probably the best striker sitting on the bench in the Premier League and he will be an unbelievable weapon, if Liverpool can keep him fit.
“He’s a lethal goalscorer and he will score at least 10 goals in the league this season, if he’s happy to be a squad player and contribute whenever he’s called upon.
“He has immense ability and can create goals out of nothing and score from anywhere. He’s a natural finisher.”
Liverpool FC are aiming to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League this season after they finished fourth and without a trophy last term.
They have won their opening two games of the season and will look to continue their 100 per cent start on Saturday evening when they host Brighton at Anfield.
