Liverpool star speaks out after incredible goal against Chelsea

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge possibly scored the goal of the season for Liverpool as we came out with a point against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Reds were trailing after an Eden Hazard goal in the first half and missed a number of quality chances to draw level.

The Englishman had come on as a second-half substitute and smacked home the equalizer in the 89th minute to ensure we kept our unbeaten Premier League run going.

The forward claimed that this was one of his best goals ever while speaking to BT Sport (h/t ESPN).

“We created a lot of chances in the first half and we were unlucky not to score in the first half. But it was a nice goal at the end for myself.

“I’d like to think [I’ve scored better goals], but probably not. This one was a nice goal. As I said, it was just about getting the result.

“It’s a team game and I just give my best [in] any minutes I get. It’s just important to keep pushing forward, having a positive outlook on everything going on and it’s been good far.”

The forward now has four goals to his name and seems to be in great form in the ongoing campaign, even though he has been restricted to coming off the bench.

Sturridge is one of the best finishers in the Premier League but his fitness has always been a problem. Hopefully, Jurgen Klopp and the medical team can keep the Englishman injury-free for the remainder of the campaign and Sturridge can continue scoring goals.

“It’s gone great”, “Another one” – Some Liverpool fans curse luck with star player picking up injury

Published

Sadio Mane

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has sustained a broken thumb, according to reports (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The star was with the national side when the injury occurred during training, and the Liverpool Echo claims Mane would be assessed by the club once he returns to Melwood.

This is another injury that Jurgen Klopp has to deal with from the international break. Virgil van Dijk is still suffering from a rib problem while Mohamed Salah picked up a minor problem for Egypt.

The duo are expected to continue their treatment at Anfield, as per the report.

The 26-year-old Mane has four goals to his name this season, and it will be interesting to see if he plays against Huddersfield at the weekend. Liverpool are tied at the top of the table with Chelsea and Manchester City on 20 points.

Some Liverpool fans were cursing the international break for the number of injuries we picked up while a few believed this was good as Mane needed a rest.

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.
