VIDEO: Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge scores stunning volley

Guess who’s back, back again?

Starting his second Premier League game this season, Daniel Sturridge scored twice in the second half for Liverpool as they beat Aston Villa 3-2 at Anfield on Saturday.

Sturridge, 26, had not scored a PL goal since March before he hammered home a wonderful volley with his left foot just after the hour mark.

The England international has been riddled with injuries over the past 12 months but with his fitness now 100 percent again, Sturridge will look to lead the Reds towards the top four as despite a tough start to the season, Brendan Rodgers’ side still sit in seventh place with 11 points from their opening seven games.

Hit the play button on the video above to enjoy Sturridge’s sumptuous volley after a clever one-two with Liverpool’s other goalscorer on Saturday, James Milner.

Bonus: The video below is of Rodgers speaking after the game as he praised Sturridge and spoke about the speculation regarding his future as Liverpool manager.
