We got to see what has become one of the most popular celebrations in the game today on Saturday as Daniel Sturridge grabbed a late equaliser for Liverpool in the 3-3 draw with Everton.
Sturridge had started the game on the bench following his exploits with England in midweek where he played 90 minutes for his country. That did not go down too well with the Liverpool manager and thus Sturridge had to be content with a role on the subs bench.
But when he came on, he managed to divert a Steven Gerrard freekick into the Everton goal and send the Liverpool fans into a celebration frenzy. The celebration mood went down onto the field with Sturridge himself as he ran to the half way line and in front of the Everton fans did his now famous ‘Sturridge Dance’.
The Liverpool striker has now explained in the Liverpool Echo, why he did his celebration on Saturday: “I celebrated where I did because the fans in that part of the ground were abusing me the whole time I was warming up so it was only right that I went down there and gave them a bit back.
“It’s all about the banter. It was nothing personal. A lot of people on the sidelines give the players a lot of banter when they are warming up.
“Sometimes you get the opportunity to return the favour and on Saturday I got the chance to do that.”

I was very happy when he danced in front of the COYB fans… I think they were lucky not to see sturridge start the second half… Sturridge made a decent impact but I think we need to re-inforce by january and throw allen, coates, borini to the gutters.. Aspas will get it soon, I just feel so.. YNWA
