Are Daniel Sturridge’s days at Anfield numbered?
That seems to be the opinion of many Liverpool fans on social media, after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Spurs at White Hart Lane.
Fresh of bagging a brace against Burton in mid-week, the England international showed signs that he was ready to get back to his best.
But rather than sticking with his ‘in form’ striker, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp opted to leave Sturridge out of the starting XI in North London, preferring to take to the field with no recognised centre forward.
Even when the flamboyant German boss did call for back up off the bench, it was in the shape of Belgian striker Divock Origi, with Sturridge having to wait until the last few minutes of the match before being introduced off the bench.
There has been speculation about the 26-year-old’s future for quite sometime, with previous reports suggesting Jugen Klopp has lost patience with the talented yet injury prone striker.
Based on the reactions from Liverpool fans on Twitter, it seems like Daniel Sturrdge could really be heading for the Anfield exit door.
Take a look at some of the Tweets below.
If Sturridge doesn't want to start pressing and investing into Klopp's ways, he won't play, simple as. Play for the team, not for yourself.— LFC| Live News (@LFC_NEW5) August 27, 2016
Lots of wasted chances today. I hear that Sturridge bloke is pretty decent at taking chances though.
