Sturridge can become first man since 1933 to do what at The Emirates this evening?

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge can equal an 80-year record with a goal against Arsenal this evening.

Daniel Sturridge has been in sensational form since the turn of the year. The England international could not buy a game at Chelsea before Brendan Rodgers rescued him and snapped him up for Liverpool.

At around £12 million he seemed an absolute snip, and he has now confirmed that feeling. He has scored 14 goals in his last 14 games, and his delightful chip against West Brom last weekend was truly remarkable.

Today, Sturridge travels to The Emirates as the SAS partnership attempts to continue their fine form in a top-of-the-table clash in North London - and if he scores he would be breaking an ancient record at the club.

Irish striker Sam English is more infamous than famous - well known in Old Firm folklore for a collision with Celtic keeper John Thomson that saw the 22-year-old tragically pass away from a horrific head injury.

But he also holds an incredible record at Liverpool Football Club - the team he joined after leaving Rangers.

In his debut season with The Reds he scored plenty of goals, including scoring in seven successive away games.

In 80 years nobody has ever matched that record, but that could change today.

Sturridge has scored against Newcastle United, Sunderland, Swansea, Aston Villa, Fulham and Newcastle again to make it six - a goal at The Emirates would make it seven.

It is a remarkable feat to score so many goals away from home, away from your fans and support and where in general performances are expected to dip against home teams fired up by a raucous crowd.

Sturridge has now been silencing those fans over the course of the past few months, and he will hope to be silencing a few more at The Emirates this evening - with a record equalling goal.

Can Sturridge equal this 80 year record?
