Liverpool fans react to Daniel Sturridge's performance against Blackburn Rovers on Twitter

Daniel Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge struggled again for Liverpool against Blackburn Rovers last night.

It was another difficult night for Daniel Sturridge at Ewood Park. Though Liverpool may have won - and the Reds' number 15 came close to adding to the side's slender lead only for him to chip the goalkeeper too well from close range - fans are still concerned about his performances.

Admittedly, Sturridge looked a little better with Raheem Sterling playing through the middle a lot more to relieve some of the burden on him.

The 25-year-old's poor first touch, that he was seemingly getting knocked off the ball easily, and his reluctance to go for goal more often are all concerns, as is the rarity of him getting in behind the defence.

The reaction to Sturridge's performance on Twitter among Liverpool fans was negative, but there was a great deal of understanding given the series of injury problems he has had this season - with some acknowledging they may not see the best of the forward who found the net on 24 occasions last season until next term.

Nevertheless, it looks as if Brendan Rodgers will persist with him up front between now and the end of the campaign, and fans are likely to look for signs of improvement.
