Daniel Sturridge came back with a bang for Liverpool tonight, and our friends at Empire of the Kop have assembled some of the best Twitter reaction to his first-half brace against Southampton…
It’s been easy to forget through his absence that Daniel Sturridge is one of the best strikers in Europe when he’s fit, and his clinical finishing against Southampton in the first-half of the League Cup tie at St. Mary’s tonight proves as much.
Despite going 1-0 down, Sturridge and co. fought back to take a 2-1 lead, with the fit again striker proving his undoubted ability with two strikes before half-time.
Liverpool fans, naturally, lost the plot.
