Daniel Sturridge appears on the front page of Saturday's edition of The National Sport. Sturridge has been the focus of a piece by Richard Jolly as the English forward struggles to find a place in the first team of the Liverpool football club.

Sturridge has been out of form and prone to injury, while he does not seem to fit in the plans of manager Jurgen Klopp. But his high wages and the fact he often breaks down means he may not be easy for Liverpool to offload.

As the team in red – fifth in the table – face second-placed Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Saturday, the question many might be asking is ‘what of Sturridge?’.
