Liverpool were knocked out of the Carabao Cup last night after they lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Anfield. The Merseysiders came into the game with a 100% record in all competitions this season and although they fielded a weakened side, they still went into the game as favourites.

The Reds took the lead courtesy of a strike by Daniel Sturridge before the Blues came back to win the game. The 29-year-old England striker opened the scoring through a fantastic overhead kick after a strike by Naby Keita from the edge of the box was parried away by Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero. The strike meant that Sturridge continued his good form in front of goal, as it took his goal tally for the season to three.

The 29-year-old’s form is certainly good news for both Jurgen Klopp as well as England manager Gareth Southgate, who is still in the hunt for a deputy to Harry Kane after Jamie Vardy announced his retirement from International football after last summer’s World Cup.

The Liverpool striker who spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom, has spent a lot of time on the treatment table, and there were a few question marks over whether he can ever get back to his best. He has certainly proved his doubters wrong with his form so far this season, and by the looks of it, the 29-year-old has started enjoying his football again.

After his goal yesterday, Sturridge patted the Liverpool badge repeatedly in a show of affection for his club, who have stood by him through his injury troubles. Liverpool fans would have certainty enjoyed the 29-year-old’s gesture after his goal last night.

Check out Sturridge’s gesture below:

Sturridge will be hoping his goal was enough to prove to his manager that he is an able deputy to Roberto Firmino. The Englishman might just have a part to play when Liverpool take on Chelsea yet again this weekend, in a top-of-the-table Premier League clash.
