Daniel Sturridge is a talismanic figure who fills me with a sense of majesty and wonder, despite his semi permanently crippled status and seemingly ever presence on the injury room table and the reason for that is he comes off the bench and scores. The accidental impact player as it were.
It surprised me no end that Klopp chose to deploy Sturridge during their demolition of Arsenal but when I saw him entering the pitch I immediately put £10 on him to be next goalscorer and moments later he did. The reason I didn’t put more on is that I lost quite a bit on the Liverpool Arsenal game… all my bets revolved around BTTS, how foolish and wrong I was.
This has happened to me several times with Daniel Sturridge. Once on a date, I went for another round and at the bar I put on my bet and by the time I got back with my pints he’d scored.
