Liverpool legend says Daniel Sturridge is not the same player anymore

Jurgen Klopp and Philippe Coutinho

The England worldwide started his third Premier League game of the season in yesterday's 1-1 draw at Newcastle.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has claimed his side are still title challengers despite their poor form this autumn.

The Merseyside outfit were unable to notch up successive Premier League victories for the first time since August following a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon. We have, obviously, our hard moments; other teams will have hard moments.

"I can not wait for those two games because watching Liverpool since Jurgen has come in - they are the games where Liverpool seem to prove everyone wrong and put in top-class performances", Gerrard told Sky Sports News.

Gerrard has also been impressed with the manner of the player adding, "I love the player and I love the character".

"Jurgen is someone I know well, so I don't want to put any pressure on but he has the tools and the potential and I think they can win trophies". "And we have Dom Solanke for sure the biggest English talent in the number nine position". We are all fans.

The result leaves Liverpool in seventh place in the Premier League, with one win in seven in all competitions.

The Spaniard led the Reds to the Champions League and FA Cup success during a celebrated six years in charge at Anfield, and retains strong links with the club and area, with his family still based on Merseyside.

Liverpool face a daunting run after the global break, with a home match against Manchester United followed by trips to Maribor in the Europa League and Tottenham in the top flight.

"I can not wait for those two games because, watching Liverpool since Jurgen has come in, they are the games where Liverpool seem to prove everyone wrong and put in top-class performances", said the former England captain, now coach of the Reds' academy side.

"I always said that the broadcaster has to consider that the wonderful thing they sell - and give a lot of money to the clubs for, 100% - depends on the players and the quality and freshness of the players". Not the best of form to have, while the draw at the weekend only continued the sour frustration among Liverpool fans going into the global break. Yet they will be used to this responsibility by now, and certainly for the foreseeable future they need to start firing once again for Liverpool to reach the top four.
