Former Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge scored twice against Chelsea in two games as Liverpool and Chelsea met in two different competitions in four days.
In last week Wednesday’s Carabao Cup competition at Anfield, it was Sturridge who opened the scoring with a stunning kick in the game before Maurizio Sarri’s side came from behind to win 2-1.
Sturridge was yet again on the scoresheet this weekend as he came on as a substitute to score a late minute goal to end the game in a draw affair at Stamford Bridge. The former Blue struck a wonderful shot from far out that was beyond the reach of kepa Arrizabalaga, and the goal killed Chelsea’s hope of getting the three points.
Sturridge who scored 24 goals in 96 appearances for Chelsea before joining Liverpool in 2013 celebrated his goal in the Carabao Cup, but he chose not to celebrate at Stamford Bridge out of respect for Chelsea.
After the game on Saturday, he took to Twitter to apologise to Chelsea fans for celebrating his goal at Anfield.
He wrote on Twitter: “The boys work their socks off and we deserved that point. Didn’t celebrate today got caught up the other day but I respect Chelsea for everything they did for me.
“Love to the travelling Liverpool fans top class today! In God I trust always.”
