Daniel Sturridge has issued a rallying cry to his former club Liverpool after they dropped points in the Premier League title race.
The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by Tottenham at Anfield on Saturday, giving rivals Manchester City a boost ahead of their clash with Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Should City win, they will go three points ahead of Liverpool with three games remaining.
Sturridge – who played for both teams either side of a spell at Chelsea – took to Twitter on Sunday to share his belief that “all isn’t lost” for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Despite the setback in their title push, Liverpool still have Champions League and FA Cup finals to look forward to, having already secured the EFL Cup in February.
To all the red men out there. All isn’t lost. Big games ahead, a lot to play for , an unbelievable squad, backroom staff and ownership in tact. The club has improved immensely in the last 10 years. My optimism for what @LFC are and will become hasn’t wavered. #redordead

“To all the red men out there. All isn’t lost,” Sturridge wrote. “Big games ahead, a lot to play for. An unbelievable squad, backroom staff and ownership intact.
“The club has improved immensely in the last 10 years. My optimism for what @LFC are and will become hasn’t wavered. #redordead”
The former England international played 160 games for Liverpool between 2013 and 2019, scoring 67 goals and registering 20 assists.
He left Anfield to sign for Trabzonspor before moving to Australia with Perth Glory.
The draw with Spurs was only the third time Liverpool have dropped points in a Premier League game since the turn of the year, and was the first time they have failed to win at home in the league since a 2-2 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion in October.
