Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has talked up Daniel Sturridge‘s ability to get into goalscoring positions following his instant impact in the 4-0 win over West Ham United at Anfield this afternoon.

Sturridge capped off the scoring with his first touch after coming off the bench, continuing his good pre-season form with a close-range finish two minutes from time.

The 28-year-old had been linked with an Anfield exit this summer, but Klopp believes that the striker will provide his side with a useful option if he is able to stay fit.

“What was it, 10 seconds? 12 seconds?! Sometimes you need luck in life. He didn’t need luck in that situation; he only has the nose for it in those situations. It’s brilliant,” Klopp told Sky Sports News.

“Sturridge had a fantastic pre-season, the best since I’ve been here, and it gives us unbelievable new options.”

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane (2) were also on the scoresheet as Liverpool recorded the biggest win of the opening weekend.
