The England international produced a moment of quality to secure a point for Liverpool FC in a 1-1 draw with his former club Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
Sturridge came off the bench to score a long distance strike to cancel out Eden Hazard’s opener and secure a valuable point in the title race for the Merseyside outfit.
The 29-year-old has now scored four goals in 188 minutes of first-team football in the current campaign to prove an effective option from the bench.
The former Manchester City forward spent the second half of the 2017-18 season on loan at relegated West Bromwich Albion to suggest his Reds career could be over.
Sturridge has been hampered with persistent injury problems since the centre-forward netted 21 times in 28 games in the 2013-14 season under Brendan Rodgers.
However, Klopp believes Sturridge is back to his physical best after the Liverpool FC striker netted a stunning equaliser against his former employers in west London.
“Three days ago he had a similar situation and hit the crossbar,” Klopp told his post-match media conference.
“He is a fantastic footballer and had a full pre-season. He is the best shape since I have known him. It’s as simple as that and really cool, I am really happy for him. He works hard, he is just a good lad, when he came in the dressing room after 20 minutes or so, it was pretty loud because the boys are all happy for him. He really is in a good moment.”
Sturridge has now scored 50 times in 103 games for Liverpool FC since his £12m move to the Anfield side from Chelsea FC in 2013 January transfer window.
