Daniel Sturridge is looking sharp and hungry, Stephan Warnock has informed Jurgen Klopp.

The Liverpool FC striker started his first Champions League game since his move to Anfield from Chelsea FC in a £12m deal in 2013.

Sturridge broke the deadlock against Paris Saint-Germain last week at the half hour mark after the striker met Andy Robertson’s cross with his head and guided a finish into the net.

The 29-year-old wasted opportunities to extend Liverpool FC’s lead before Klopp replaced Sturridge with match winner Roberto Firmino.

Sturridge has struggled to hold down a starting spot under the German head coach and was sent out on loan to West Brom back in January.

However, former Liverpool FC defender Warnock is impressed with Sturridge’s current condition after Liverpool FC’s 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain.

“I watched him in pre-season and he looked hungry and sharp,” Warnock told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He looked like he wanted to be part of the plans. He came back fit and hungry. I am made up for him to get that goal. He looked hungry.”

Sturridge is still waiting to win his first trophy since his move to Liverpool FC from Chelsea FC after winning the Champions League in 2012.

The England star scored in Liverpool FC’s 3-1 loss to Sevilla in the Europa League final in 2015.

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League showpiece in Kiev back in May.
