Former striker Daniel Sturridge is annoyed by Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to substitute both Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer from the field in attacking games. Draw with Manchester City 1-1 in the English Premier League last Saturday.

    Sterling was the one who scored the lead goal for the team in this game and put on an impressive performance. But was substituted off the field in the 64th minute of the game for Christopher Nkunku to come on the field instead ทางเข้า UFABET 

    In addition, Palmer, who was able to play the game on the counter-attack well was substituted in the 71st minute. While the team was leading 1-0 with Trevoh Chalobah coming on to the field. Hoping to tighten up the defense more tightly. But in the end, he conceded a goal to Rodri in the 83rd minute.

    Sturridge believes Pochettino should have kept Sterling and Palmer on the field to respond on counter-attacks rather than just retreating to full defense. 

    “As you can see, things are going well counter attack. The change of game, the combination, all that stuff is going well.” Sturridge told Sky Sports.

    “I think as attacking players we can create more chances. They didn’t get a chance to score after 70 minutes of the game, they played with five defenders.

    “They were a threat in the second half with Jackson doing his job. And then the two players who were a threat (Sterling and Palmer) were substituted!”
