Daniel Sturridge delivered an exceptional display as a pundit while discussing Chelsea’s struggle in front of goal

If it weren’t for recurring injury problems, Daniel Sturridge would have been considered one of the greatest strikers in the history of the Premier League.

During his prime at Liverpool, Sturridge was practically unstoppable.

Teaming up with Luis Suarez in 2013/14, Sturridge’s performance was lethal and almost led the Reds to a Premier League championship.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned injuries began to take effect shortly after, and that season was likely the pinnacle of Sturridge’s career.

In 2019, Sturridge parted ways with Liverpool and was subsequently released by Perth Glory, an Australian team, last year. As of now, he is without a club.

While he has not retired from professional football, Sturridge’s peak days are well behind him.

Thus, Sturridge, a former England international, has ventured into punditry and recently joined Sky Sports’ panel for Tuesday evening’s 0-0 draw between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Sturridge’s performance as a pundit was impressive, seamlessly blending humor and insightful commentary throughout Sky Sports’ coverage.

In particular, he shone after the game when asked to analyze Chelsea’s difficulties in scoring goals.

Sturridge has valuable expertise in this area given his past success as a prolific Premier League striker.

A mini lesson in finishing, followed my some top-quality analysis and opinion, great stuff.

One tweet in the comment section summed up the above video quite perfectly.

Tom Chitty wrote: “The body language of the other three is totally focused on DS. They are really engaged in what he’s saying. More often than not pundits aren’t particularly interested in what each other have to say, unless they’re arguing.”

What did Sturridge say about Romelu Lukaku?

During the segment, Lukaku’s name was brought up, the £100 million striker who is currently on loan at Inter Milan.

Jamie Carragher was adamant the Belgian is not the solution to Chelsea’s striker problems, but Sturridge believes he can still succeed in west London.

“For argument’s sake, we know his [Lukaku’s] attributes are in the box, headers, one-touch finishes, if players around him provide those opportunities, right now maybe he is right player for that, if he was here he could score those chances,” Sturridge said.

“Not saying [they have to] bring him back and build a team around him but at the moment he can be the player they need.”

A Lukaku remontada at Stamford Bridge next season under a new manager? Don’t rule it out!
