1) Sturridge is a freaking dead-eye sniper. Every time he shoots, I get the feeling the ball is going to end up in the back of the net. The game completely pivoted around his goals. If we can get any kind of healthy consistency from him, there’s no limit to what this team can accomplish. This isn’t to take away from the team performance. Both Allen and Can delivered pin point passes, but Sturridge was in position to receive those passes in a way we haven’t seen much this year.
2) I still feel the weakest part of our team is at full back. Moreno has definitely improved tremendously, but he still often looks shaky when defending. Clyne is very solid on defense, but there’s just not much in the way of cover for him or for Moreno, let alone competition. (I don’t say this to disparage Randall or Smith, who I thought played very well for youngsters.) It also says something that Smith has delivered the best cross from a full back so far this season.
