Daniel Sturridge Emergence As Goalscoring Threat For Chelsea

Daniel Sturridge scored yet again in front of AVB at The Bridge against Liverpool last weekend. What more does he HAVE to do to earn a permanent place in Chelsea frontline? AVB has so far persisted with both Torres and Drogba while only allowing Sturridge to shine as an impact substitute or on the right of a front three.

And shine is what the young lad has done and kept on doing repeatedly. He has scored six goals this season and he is the Blues second best goalscorer behind Lampard. Even when not playing in his favored position, Sturridge strike rate (43%) is better than Torres, Anelka, Kalou and Drogba combined.

It is fair to say that Daniel Sturridge is now a goalscoring threat for Chelsea. Andre Villas-Boas can rely on him to deliver on the promise that Sturridge evidently has. The question now is whether he can shoulder the responsibility of leading the Chelsea attack. Based on current form, he seems to be the best striking option available to Chelsea with Torres misfiring and Drogba a pale shadow of his usual rampaging self.

Cometh the hour, cometh the man? Robin Van Persie excelled when Arsene Wenger gave him more responsibility at the tail end of last season. Sturridge is just waiting in the wings (literally!!) for AVB to entrust Chelsea title hopes on his young shoulders and the Portuguese manager should do it now.

As a Liverpool Fan who collect all football shirts of Liverpool players, If Suarez was to leave i'd use that money to get Benteke and Mata from Chelsea!
