Daniel Sturridges captivating analysis of Darwin Nunez – and how he can improve

Sturridge scored 67 goals in 160 appearances across his six-and-a-half seasons at Anfield, and is widely regarded as one of the best finishers in the clubs recent history.

Injuries ultimately hampered him from carving out an even better Liverpool career, but he did net 24 times during the 2013/14 season in which the Reds came agonisingly close to lifting the Premier League title under Brendan Rodgers.

He also earned himself a Champions League medal before departing the club in 2019, and the former No. 15 had plenty of complimentary words to say about the current No. 9 during punditry duties ahead of Chelseas trip to Tottenham.

Sturridge did, however, cite composure as a reason for Nunez having not yet hit his full potential, with a series of recent misses giving fans some cause for concern.

I think he brings excitement and aggression in attack in terms of the runs he makes, hes an exciting player to watch and I think he is a defenders nightmare, said Sturridge on Sky Sports Monday Night Football.
