Liverpool’s Double Gives Sturridge Time To Shine

Friday, February 8th, 2013 at 9:39 am by Phil Mc Grath

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers must be delighted with his January signing of Daniel Sturridge. The young English striker has scored three goals and picked up an assist for Liverpool in his first four games. This is a great return for fantasy Premier league managers as he is picked up attacking points at every game he has played so far.

Fantasy managers will be hoping Sturridge can carry his form into Liverpool's double fixture week.

Although last weekend against Manchester city it appeared that Daniel Sturridge picked up a muscle injury the player played on and scored a wonderful goal against Joe Hart to help Liverpool get a draw against his former club.

This injury has caused some fantasy Premier league managers serious concern ahead of rounds 26 of the Irish Times fantasy Premier league. Liverpool have two home games coming up against West Brom and Swansea which means a lot of fantasy Premier league managers are bringing in the English Striker.


West Brom are really struggling to keep clean sheets in the last eight Premier league games they have failed to do so. In this period the Baggies have fallen to ninth place in the Premier League and are not showing any signs of stemming the tide as they prepare to visit Anfield.

Swansea are struggling to get results and score goals at the moment Brendan Rodgers will be eyeing this fixture up against his former club as an opportunity to move closer to the champions league qualification spots Liverpool are currently nine points away from this. As Swansea prepare to line out in the first major cup final their players may not want to risk injury against Liverpool at Anfield which could work in Liverpool’s and Sturridge’s favour
