Liverpool legend Ian Rush has stated that Daniel Sturridge can play a role in Liverpool’s charge for the league.
The Reds could only finish fourth last season, with Mane and Coutinho the highest goalscorers.
Rush expects that should Sturridge be able to maintain fitness, he should bang in the goals for the club.
“With the way Liverpool play, they spread the goals around more but it would be great if we could get one player that guarantees you 20 or 25 goals a season — that could be a big difference,” he told the Irish Examiner.
“You never know, if Sturridge gets himself fit and all that, he’s very gifted as a player and he’s capable of doing it. But then to get into Jurgen Klopp’s side you’ve got to be 100% committed to what he feels.
“That could be [decisive in the title race]. We’ve got people getting you 10 or 15 but if you can get someone who can get you 25 goals a season, that could be a big, big difference. That’s proven when you look at Chelsea and Manchester City winning it with these people who can get you a guaranteed 25 goals a season.”
