Top 10 Liverpool players of the decade
- Liverpool has had quite the transformation from 2010 to 2019!
#9 Daniel Sturridge
Daniel Sturridge was one of Brendan Rodgers' most successful signings at Liverpool, joining the club in January 2013 for £12 million, from Chelsea, and making an immediate impact. The Englishman scored in each of his first three appearances for the Reds and then went on an incredible run which saw him score 35 goals in his first season and a half, including Liverpool's title charge in 2014.
Sturridge formed a scintillating strike partnership with Luis Suarez, with the pair of them scoring goals for fun and being the top two goalscorers in the Premier League for 2013-14.
After Suarez left, it looked like the former Manchester City academy graduate would pick up from where he left off. However, injury problems seriously derailed the rest of his Liverpool career.
There was still a few years' worth of contributions left for Sturridge at Anfield, as he scored some massive goals under Jürgen Klopp. His strike against Sevilla in the 2016 Europa League final will always be special, even if the result did not go Liverpool's way.
Sturridge's last goal for the Reds was that last-minute wonder goal at Stamford Bridge and he left the club this summer as a European champion. Not a bad way to go out.
Studge will also be remembered fondly by Liverpool fans for his signature dance, which he has busted out on many different occasions over the years.
