Daniel Sturridge scored a vital goal against Chelsea on Saturday to keep Klopp's Liverpool unbeaten after 7 games in the league.

After his acrobatic equalizer against the same side in the Carabao
/League Cup during the week, the Birmingham-born striker has made a very strong case for himself as a regular starter in Jurgen Klopp's side in the future.

So where does 50-goal Sturridge start in Klopp's unchanging Liverpool team.

Despite Mohammed Salah's slow start to the Season, you have to persist with him after his remarkable debut Season.

Roberto Firminho is virtually undropable, linking attack to defence and scoring plenty of goals also.

Sadio Mané has been a great buy for Liverpool from Southampton and while he has scored some very important goals I would have Daniel Sturridge as a starter against both Napoli in the Champion's League  on Wednesday and against Man City on Sunday. 

Mané get his goals but he can also be a peripheral player for long spells, that's not to say that he is a bad player, but I just feel that Daniel Sturridge is getting back to his lethal best and should start as a striker in the upcoming games for Liverpool this week.

Liverpool may have shot themselves in the foot in an act of madness.

Mo Salah was spotted using his mobile phone while driving into Melwood. Someone at the ground informed other LFC staff and what happened?

Liverpool reported Mo Salah to the police for using his phone while driving. They also cautioned Salah, Liverpool and the Premier League's top scorer last Season, himself about the incident and advised him against using his phone while driving in future.

If a team ever wanted to annoy or upset a player, they have surely done it to Mo Salah. The guy must be livid with the club.
He may even consider a move away from the side that he has rewarded so loyally by scoring nearly 50 goals last Season. It would be hard to blame him if he walked away now after this incident.

But I hope he doesn't and that he puts it all behind him and carries on scoring loads more goals again this year.

Xherdan Shaqiri has joined Liverpool in a £13.5 million deal, after three years in the Premier League with Stoke City that included 84 appearances and a total of 30 goals and assists after spells with Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and FC Basel.

Speaking to reporters at Melwood, he said: As a player you always want to be on the biggest stage in football. A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn’t happen. I’m really happy that now I’m finally here. I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles. That’s what I’m here for." 

Klopp has admired the attacker’s versatility, skillset and personality for some time and feels the opportunity to recruit the 26-year-old came at the perfect moment for both parties.
“I think the English phrase to explain the decision to sign Xherdan is a ‘no-brainer’. When someone like him becomes available in this way you have to react if you are smart – and we have,” the manager told
“He has speed and ability, has the right amount of arrogance on the football pitch, real bravery to want the ball and influence things.
To play for us these are mandatory requirements.

“We are the perfect move for him in this moment as well I think, because he needs to push himself and challenge himself and our environment encourages that. We will want him to express himself but also learn and improve the areas of his game where he can still make progression.
“From our perspective, he is someone who makes a big difference to the squad and team, because he can fit in so many positions in our system. He gives us greater flexibility in how we can use our current players also. This is cool.
“I know him well from his time in Switzerland and especially Germany – I have been a long-time admirer.

But the added bonus now is that he knows the Premier League", said Klopp "and what it takes to perform in this uniquely intense environment. He also did really well at the World Cup – so he comes to us full of belief and confidence.
“Finally, Xherdan the person will fit in perfectly at Liverpool I believe. He has personality and drive – he is someone who will feed off the positive emotion of our crowd.
He joins a dressing room of really good lads and I know they will welcome him with open arms and help him settle and integrate quickly.”
