Liverpool v. United ~ #DrivenBy: The Manifesto | Chevrolet FC

The Fixture Of The Season ~ 2013

The Reds play the Red Devils January 13th at Old Trafford. What makes this fixture different than ones in recent years is that they come into the game  two of the hottests teams in the league. Liverpool are recently making giant strides up the table winning by 2, 3 goal margins and United sitting pretty on the top of the heap in number 1. Liverpool will com into  the game with a league form of 2 losses out of 4, and United with only a draw in the last 6.

Both teams have the hottest strikers in the league. Liverpool's Luis Suarez has taken this season by storm single handily taking up the scoring mantle at Liverpool,  second behind Robin Van Persie with 15 goals in the EPL's top scorer list. Van Persie with one more at 16 has been a revelation at United since moving from Arsenal, and will look to separate himself further from Suarez by scoring on the 13th.

Who will do it for their team?

"Out The Blocks," And It's Sturridge, Daniel Sturridge.

Welcome back to Liver n' Onions

I'am pleased to welcome 23 year old, England International Daniel Sturridge to the Liverpool ranks. Pending his signature on a long tem contract Sturridge states he's committed to the Liverpool/ Rodgers cause for time to come,

"Brendan Rodgers said he sees me here for a long time - and I also see myself here for a long time. I've not signed here to play for a couple of years and then move on.

Recently a quite couple of seasons has kept Sturridge's name out of the spotlight, but this move to Liverpool has built upon Sturridge's meteoric rise to relevance. Sturridge began his professional career at Manchester City, where he finished top-scorer as City lifted the FA Youth Cup in 2008. In 2009 he signed for Chelsea where he established himself as one of the best young forwards in the country, firing 24 times during his stay at Stamford Bridge.His form at Chelsea led to full international recognition at the age of just 22.
Having scored 21 goals in 34 appearances for England at youth level, Fabio Capello handed him a senior bow in a friendly against Sweden in November 2011.
Having played a multitude of forward positions for various clubs, Sturridge will likely  play upfront with Luis Suarez at Liverpool, either behind the Uruguayan or as a front two. Very much a Brendan Rodgers player, Sturridge is quick, tricky and makes insightful and incisive runs as a forward. He's adaptable to many forward positions, as a wide right attacker, or through the middle. To add he's young and English. 
Excited to see what he can do.
