Daniel Sturridge boosted Liverpool’s striking ranks when he arrived at Anfield from Chelsea on the second day of 2013.

The striker was born in Birmingham on September 1, 1989 and began his youth career at his hometown club Aston Villa before moving to Coventry and then Manchester City in 2003.

He faced Liverpool for the first time in 2006 in the FA Youth Cup final. The youngest player in the City side, Sturridge fired four goals en route to the final but the young Reds proved too strong as they ran-out 3-2 winners on aggregate.
