Daniel Sturridge has been benched for the Premier League clash against Tottenham causing Liverpool fans to react furiously on Twitter.

Sturridge, 26, scored two goals against Burton in the cup game midweek but has been relegated to the bench alongside fellow striker Divock Origi.

Jurgen Klopp has opted to line-up with a front three of Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane.

Sturridge has a prolific record with Liverpool during his short career, scoring 56 goals in just 94 appearances.

Liverpool supporters have expressed their anger over the decision to drop the English forward.
