‘Goal of the season? - Expert in the field asks the question for Sturridge chip

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has scored a wonderful goal this afternoon, which Matt Le Tissier seemed to suggest could rival great goals recently scored by Arsenal and Fulham stars.

Liverpool were at their sumptuous best this afternoon, as they absolutely tonked West Brom at Anfield with the SaS partnership once again looking absolutely class.

Luis Suarez will undoubtedly get most of the headlines, and rightly so after his delightful hat-trick, but Daniel Sturridge tried his best to steal the limelight.

We really have been treated this week in regards to superb goals. First there was that incredible team-goal from Arsenal against Norwich, as Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere played a double one-two before the Englishman finished with a one touch effort.

Aaron Ramsey also scored a goal lost in the wake of the Wilshere effort that was truly fantastic.

Then of course there was Monday night - when Fulham simply pulled off a showreel.

Steve Sidwell’s was superb, but Patijm Kasani’s one touch then volley from a Van Basten-esque region of the pitch.

Now, it may still be early days, but there have been those already saying that we will not see better - and it is between these two goals for goal of the season.

But Liverpool striker Sturridge’s effort against The Baggies this afternoon might just be involved.

At least that appears to be the view of Sky Sports pundit Matt Le Tissier. He was watching the game in the Sky Sports News studio this afternoon, and shouted frantically when the ball hit the back of the net - that Liverpool had now scored four goals.

He then made Paul Merson lean across and watch the goal because he knew the former Arsenal player would enjoy watching the sublime finish.

Which he did, applauding the 30-yard chipped lob over the helpless Boaz Myhill.

At which point Le Tiss turned to him and muttered quizzically … ‘’goal of the season?’’

I disagree, I think that both the goal by Wilshere and Kasami are better - but it was still some goal.

But Matt Le Tissier would know a thing or two about great goals, so who am I to disagree…
