When you think of the English national team, you do tend to imagine a situation where in-form players are moved around to accommodate those with bigger reputations.  Hopefully, that’s not a trap Roy Hodgson falls into this Summer and fingers-crossed he decides to use Daniel Sturridge in a central role rather than as an ill-fitting false winger.

We shall see.

Here are Sturridge’s Premier League statistics from an outstanding season with Liverpool:

- Made 26 starts and 3 substitute appearances.

- Scored 21 goals.

- Provided his team with 7 assists.

- Had 99 shots this season at an average of 3.4 per game.

- Completed 587 of 740 attempted passes (79.3%).

- Won 7 of the 40 aerial duels he contested.

- Created 29 goal-scoring opportunities.

- Was fouled 39 times.
