PHOTO: Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge poses with 'Doctor Evil'

The Reds striker replicated a famous pose from the Austin Powers movies alongside actor Mike Myers.

Daniel Sturridge has always impressed with his ability - not just on the ball - but to relax under pressure.

The 24-year-old has never been one to shirk away from a challenge, with his laid-back approach helping him cope with life at Anfield so far.

It is no surprise, then, that Sturridge finds himself posting a picture of him posing with famous actor Mike Myers on Instagram with Liverpool's Premier League campaign just three days away.

The England striker was doing it as part of the 'Throwback Thursday' hashtag.

Myers is a well-known supporter of the Reds and was snapped doing the 'Doctor Evil' pose from the Austin Powers movies with Sturridge.

On a serious note, England man Sturridge remains Liverpool's main striker, with the club's attempts to bring in another centre-forward this summer so far proving to no avail.

Luis Suarez left the Merseyside club for £75 million earlier this summer and, while the Reds have made seven new signings, Brendan Rodgers is yet to sign a new 'big-name' striker, after signing Rickie Lambert earlier in the transfer window.

Myers, meanwhile, is a life-long Liverpool fan and described being the guest of honour at Anfield last year as a thrilling experience.

“I'm so thrilled to be here, I cannot even believe it. I'm normally really chatty but I'm speechless right now," he said.
