Liverpool fans urge Klopp to pick 27-year-old v West Ham
By Will Butcher
Liverpool fans have urged Jurgen Klopp on Twitter to start Daniel Sturridge against West Ham on Sunday over Divock Origi.
Sturridge, 27, has endured a difficult season at Anfield with a number of injuries preventing him from featuring on a regular basis in Klopp’s starting eleven.
It has seen Belgium international Origi feature more regularly than Sturridge, with the former Lille striker failing to find the back of the net during Sunday’s 0-0 draw against Southampton.
Origi was replaced by Sturridge in the 69th minute of the encounter, and could now start from the off as Klopp looks to earn his 21st league win of the season and boost his side’s chances of finishing in the top four.
Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter in an attempt to persuade Klopp to start Sturridge over Origi on Sunday, as Liverpool look to go one better than the 2-2 draw back in December.

if Sturridge has been remotely fit to start the last couple it's criminal he hasn't. Origi bereft of ideas.

Let's hope that scenario doesn't happen. Klopp has to start Sturridge and Lallana. Origi should be nowhere near that team. Very ordinary.

This season, England international Sturridge has scored six goals during 25 appearances in all competitions as well as supplying three assists for the Reds.
Since signing for the Reds, Sturridge has amassed a huge 60 goals in just 117 outings and could now put West Ham to the sword on Sunday should he be handed his 10th start of the season.
