Gosh. You go without something for so long and you just kind of learn to live without it. Life is darker and sadder, but you find a way to keep going. And then you get the thing back, and you just don’t know how you lived without it.
That’s how I feel about Daniel Sturridge scoring goals.
D-Studge started for Liverpool against Huddersfield Town and there was some... skepticism in some parts of Liverpool fandom. He hasn’t quite regained the magic he had in 2013-14, to be sure, and there were worries that his goal drought would continue through today.
But it didn’t! We got some Vintage Sturridge today! With a ball sent over the top and into the box, Sturridge shook his defenders and managed to get one on one with the Huddersfield goalkeeper. He side-footed a chip over the keeper, sending the ball inside the far post and into the net.
Good to have you back, Daniel!
