'I'm going to be on a mad one' - Sturridge will celebrate goal against Chelsea this weekend

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool

Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge says he won't be able to contain himself if he scores the winner v Chelsea this weekend.

This weekend sees Chelsea travel to Liverpool and The Blues are set to field a ‘weakened’ team for the game at Anfield.

Of course the fact remains that a weakened Chelsea team is still set to include the likes of Nemanja Matic, Ashley Cole, Mohamed Salah and Demba Ba - so it will not be that weak at all.

And one Liverpool player who would have once been used in a game like this by The Blues is Daniel Sturridge.

The former Chelsea player left Stamford Bridge in a £12 million deal to join Liverpool in January 2013 and has not looked back - scoring 34 goals in 46 appearances for The Reds since making the move.

This weekend however sees him in a race against time to be fit - although he is backing himself to return from a hamstring injury.

He has stated:

"Hopefully this weekend I'll be back. I'm not too sure if he'll [Rodgers] play me or not. We’ll have to see."

Sturridge, who missed the 3-2 win against Norwich City last weekend, is the league’s second top goalscorer so his return is very important for Liverpool as they look to put more than one hand on a first Premier League trophy.

But what if Sturridge comes on and scores the winning goal. Will he be docile and not rub it in his former employers face?

What do you think?

“I would like to show respect to my former club but if I were to come on and score in the last minute I'm going to be on a mad one, aren't I?. I don't know if I could control myself if that happened."

Take that as a no then Daniel?
