Daniel Sturridge ensured Tuesday’s Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton would (probably) be decided by halftime with this sumptuous chip from just outside the penalty area in the 35th minute. It made the score 3-0. United States No. 1 Tim Howard had no chance since Sturridge’s chip was simply that perfect. It was Sturridge’s second goal of the game.
Notice Sturridge’s Balotelli-like pose as he waited on the edge of the box, watching if the ball will float into the back of the net.
Liverpool is rolling and Luis Suarez hasn’t even scored yet.
