Watch: Daniel Sturridge Opens The Scoring For Liverpool

Piece of cake!

Wheee!

Given all the grumbling about Daniel Sturridge’s future and the frantic whispers about his start today against West Ham, it’s a touch poetic that he’s the one who put Liverpool into the lead.

Philippe Coutinho hit a gorgeous throughball from midfield that split West Ham’s defense open. Sturridge, onside and resplendent, ran onto the pass and found himself one-on-one with Adrián. He rounded the keeper and slotted in to give the Reds a 1-0 lead in the 35th minute.

Lovely. Simply lovely.
