Daniel Sturridge was once regarded as one of the best strikers in England, especially during the 2013/14 season where he formed a formidable partnership with Luis Suarez and went on to score 25 goals in the former Chelsea man's best season as a player.
However, he never went on to fulfil his potential at Liverpool after a backlog of consistent injuries which hindered his development.
He recently moved back to his hometown and joined Alan Pardew and West Brom on loan in a bid to rediscover his form and show the world that he's got what it takes to play at the highest level.
Here are a few reasons why Sturridge will reignite his career with the Baggies:
3. No More Bench Warming
Sturridge had fallen a long way down the pecking order at Anfield and, as a result of numerous injuries, has not featured since the Champions League match with Spartak Moscow in December.
Looking back, it was probably never going to work out between Daniel Sturridge and Jürgen Klopp at Liverpool. The German manager much prefers the attacking potency of Roberto Firmino to the England international, and it was inevitable that Sturridge would have seen out the remainder of the season on the bench had he stayed with Liverpool.
However, his move to the West Midlands will almost guarantee him action throughout the remainder of the season - barring any injuries of course...
Sturridge is desperate to play football, there are no two ways about it, and at West Brom, he'll be given a handful of opportunities to change some public perceptions which have clung to him throughout his career.
2. Will Relish Being the Main Man
The former Manchester City forward plays to the best of his abilities when he knows he's the main man and when he's the first name on the team sheet. West Brom aren't spoilt for choice when it comes to attacking options, with Jay Rodriguez and Salomon Rondon boasting a mere seven goals in 45 matches between them this season.
Albion have been crying out for goals as of late and this is the perfect opportunity for Sturridge to become a pivotal figure in the Baggies relegation battle. The more games he plays and the more goals he scores will only bolster his confidence and there aren't many better than a confident and self-assured Sturridge as we've seen many times in the past.
1. Back on Course for England's World Cup squad
All it takes is a few consistent and inspiring performances for the Baggies and Sturridge will find himself in contention to book his seat on a plane to Russia.
Gareth Southgate will be keeping a close eye on the striker - who has eight goals in 24 caps for his Country. England don't have too many natural strikers other than Harry Kane, and if Sturridge shows off his natural goal-scoring abilities during his spell at the Hawthorns, then he'll certainly be a great backup for Kane come the summer.
Sturridge still has plenty to offer and should feel like he has a point to prove to all his critics. If he manages to hit the ground running with the Albion and manages an England call-up, Sturridge will have already shown vast amounts of progress compared to his last few seasons at Anfield, in which he's been a spectator for the most part.
