That is according to former Liverpool manager and Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness.

Daniel Sturridge’s time at Anfield has been littered with injuries in recent seasons.

The Englishman is now firmly a backup option for Jurgen Klopp, with Roberto Firmino the preferred central striker.

Souness says a player with Sturridge’s ability should be a regular starter for Liverpool and his country.

That boy should be one of the first names on the team sheet

However, he has questioned the 29-year-old’s attitude and desire to be the best he can be.

“I think he’s one of those boys that will finish his career and look back and think ‘do you know what, I didn’t make the most of what God gave me’,” Souness said.

“I think he’s wonderfully talented.

“When you have someone like him, he has so much ability and on a daily basis in training you would think ‘why can’t he have a pint of energy on match days?’.

“I would have him in front of [Divock] Origi but I’m not saying he’s someone that you can trust.

“That boy should be one of the first names on the team sheet, I said it a few years ago.

“He should be one of the first names on the team sheet for England as well.

“His career is going to pass him by and he is never going to fulfil the potential that he has.

“He has been given a God-given talent that few have, but he doesn’t apply himself properly.

“I watched a game a few years ago when he was at Liverpool, warming up, and he was going through the motions.

“And you’re saying ‘no wonder you get injured when you come on as a sub’. I might be wrong, he might be a demon in training.

“But I’ll come back to it, he’s a man who’s got so much ability and he will finish his career and he’ll be angry with himself.

“That’s where I see him.”
