Liverpool striker answered his critics with a goal against Villarreal.
What followed was even better as he celebrated wildly, showing that he cares more than ever about the club.
Sturridge had left supporters uncomfortable after telling The Mail last week he regarded playing for the club as 'work', and refusing to commit his long term future.
At the weekend after the loss to Swansea City he trudged off the pitch on his own while his teammates gathered to applaud the fans, but last night showed that the striker cares deeply about being successful with the Reds, and is simply passionate about winning - an attitude all Liverpool fans can get behind.
Liverpool beat Villarreal 3-0 on the night and 3-1 on aggregate, with Sturridge scoring the crucial second goal to ensure the tie tipped in their favour when it was previously level.
The team are just into the Europa League final where they play Sevilla, with Champions League qualification also up for grabs for the winners.
Here is a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to Sturridge's performance...
