The 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Saturday brought a few notable landmarks for the Reds. They scored more than one goal in a game for the first time this season, and scored three for the first time since February.
There was a first goal for James Milner too, as he appears to be getting into his stride as stand-in captain in place of the injured Jordan Henderson.
But the real story was to be found elsewhere on the pitch, as Sturridge’s first goals since March – sumptuous finishes both – propelled Liverpool to a much needed three points.
His goals also saw him break a new record, becoming Liverpool’s most prolific striker in Premier League history.
