Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson show off sandwich-making skills

image

Who makes a better $5 Footlong: Daniel Sturridge or Jordan Henderson?

We finally found the answer to this powerful life question after the two Liverpool stars faced off in a sandwich-making competition at a Boston Subway. Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Jim Corsi served as the judge, and had to choose between Henderson’s rather simple chicken parmesan and Sturridge’s bizarre steak and meatball concoction.

Find out who won in the video below:

Daniel Sturridge becomes human target in Honduras friendly

imageDaniel Sturridge did not have a good weekend (Image: Reuters)

Saturday was not kind to England’s Daniel Sturridge. The usually dependable target man looked more like the subject of target practice in the Three Lions’ last World Cup tune-up match against Honduras.

First, Sturridge received a nasty shot to the man area from Emilio Izaguirre: (Izaguirre would receive a yellow card for this completely uncalled for act, so at least justice was done.)

Later in the match, after Sturridge bottled a few chances he would normally convert, the Liverpool man was hit by a beer can thrown from the stands, probably by a fan who was displeased with the performance:

Hopefully for England, Sturridge will be doing more of the striking in Brazil, rather than getting struck by things.

Daniel Sturridge scores a beautiful curler for England

The runner-up for the Premier League Golden Boot has proven it doesn’t matter what kit he’s wearing — Daniel Sturridge is just good at scoring goals.

In England’s friendly against Peru on Friday, the Liverpool striker took matters into his own hands feet to break the deadlock after a pretty dull start from the Three Lions. That’ll do, Daniel. That’ll do:

If Sturridge continues to have moments of brilliance like this, he will shine for England in the World Cup this summer. Though the lack of dancing was a tad disappointing. He’s probably just saving it up for Brazil.

Daniel Sturridge treats Liverpool kids to best day at school ever

Most days, the clock ticks far too slowly for kids in school. They can’t wait for the bell to ring, signaling freedom (at least until the next day). But for one class at Anfield Junior School, the second hand could have frozen and they wouldn’t have minded one bit.

Liverpool striker and funny guy Daniel Sturridge surprised a group of young kids, and the adorableness is overwhelming.

So kids, keep in mind that next time you go to school, Daniel Sturridge might show up and teach you how to dance (but probably not).

Either do Daniel Sturridge’s dance correct, or don’t do it at all

If you hadn’t noticed, Daniel Sturridge has a very identifiable dance. It’s quite difficult to properly describe, but just watch a Liverpool or England game and you’re likely to see him bust it out, given his torrid scoring clip.

But with great success comes great responsibility, and Sturridge told the BBC he doesn’t want anyone doing his dance improperly.

"If someone does a dance that you’ve created, and they do it wrong, you look bad, no?" the Liverpool striker said. Makes sense! But fear not, he wants to give rhythm-less schmoes like us a tutorial.

Sturridge also hinted that the dance isn’t quite complete, noting something is in the “pipeline” for next season. Maybe the tutorial should wait until we know exactly what we’re up against.

SAS reloaded as Sturridge return lifts Liverpool in thriller

imagePhoto: Action Images

SAS, the devastating duo of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, is finally back in action, and it didn’t take long for them to rekindle their chemistry.

Two minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute, Sturridge — who returned from a two-month injury layoff — promptly assisted on Suarez’s second goal of the match to make it 4-2 Reds. Eighteen minutes later, the comeback kid netted one on his own to make it 5-3. Game, set, match.

For SAS, that’s all par for the course. Prior to Sunday, Sturridge and Suarez had only been on the pitch together for seven of the first 20 Premier League games, but scored 14 goals between them in those seven. They quickly established themselves as the most fearsome partnership in the league.

Indeed, Liverpool’s rivals should really count their blessings that SAS has, until now, been held back by Sturridge’s sprained ankle and, of course, Suarez’s “Bitegate.” Had both featured all season long, the Reds may very well be at the top of the table right now. Then again, it’s not like Liverpool has been struggling. Without one, the other half of SAS has carried the load.

Sturridge scored in each of the first four games of the season as Suarez sat out for his bite attack on Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. And once Sturridge went down — after that teasing, seven-match parade of perfect synergy — Suarez has, well, done Suarez things. That is to say, score breathtaking goals almost every week.

Now that the two are reunited at long last — and clearly enjoying each other’s company — this video seems all too appropriate:

Luis Suarez scores brace on Premier League return

image

Luis Suarez scored a brace on his Premier League return to lead Liverpool past winless Sunderland on Sunday. Suarez linked up with Daniel Sturridge on both goals after having served his 10-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in the arm.

On the Uruguayan’s first, Sturridge dribbled past two men on the right wing and delivered a low cross into the box, which Suarez met perfectly for the goal. Turning away to celebrate, Suarez revealed his undershirt welcoming his new son into the world. Benjamin, the striker’s second child, was born on Thursday.

Suarez completed his brace late in the second half on a brilliant counterattack. Receiving Simon Mignolet’s quick toss, Suarez lobbed the ball across the field to Sturridge, who got around a defender and played it back to the wide-open Uruguayan at the far post. It was Liverpool’s first second-half goal of the season.

The performance should recall memories of last season’s prolific partnership between the Suarez and Sturridge following the latter’s transfer from Chelsea last winter. With Suarez now back in the side, Liverpool look even better than ever during their surprise start.

Sturridge nets winner as Liverpool beat archrivals Man United

There may be no player more on fire than Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge.

The now 24-year-old striker — he celebrated his birthday today — scored his third straight match-winning goal to send Liverpool past old enemy Manchester United and to the top of the Premier League. It was Liverpool’s third straight 1-0 win to start the season, the first time since 1994 that the Reds have started on nine points.

Sturridge has now scored 11 goals in his last nine appearances in all competitions for Liverpool. Fans may be wondering, is there even a need for Luis Suarez? Or perhaps they’re already dreaming about what could be possible once the Uruguayan returns to link up with the hottest player in the Premier League.
