Sturridge became only the sixth player in Premier League history to score in his first four games after equalizing against Newcastle United in his fourth encounter. Sturridge continued to make an impression at Bolton, finishing his loan term with eight goals in 12 matches.
The forward began his career at Liverpool before moving to Chelsea in 2013. He had short stints at both Southampton and Stoke before joining Sunderland in 2016. Sturridge moved back to England two years later when he signed with Bolton. He has since become a regular starter for his new club and has helped them secure a spot in the English top flight for the first time in their history.
Sturridge has been one of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League during his time at Liverpool and Chelsea. During his four seasons with Bolton, the 29-year-old has still managed to find the back of the net 26 times in all competitions. His early goal tally this season has already surpassed that of last season when he scored 15 times.
Sturridge's goal against Newcastle was his fourth in as many games following his debut match against West Ham United. The former England international is currently leading the charge for Liverpool's playoff push this season.
Sturridge had a wonderful start to the season before suffering an injury that prevented him from adding to his total. He has 11 goals from 14 league games, with a conversion percentage of 23.4 percent. Again, just around one in every four shots is successful.
Fans are sometimes upset when their team's strikers fail to capitalize on their opportunities. Some attackers, though, have a significantly greater conversion rate than others, and you'll be astonished to find who makes this list. This season in the Premier League, it has taken an average of 9.91 shots to score a goal.
He takes more shots than any other Premier League player, yet his shoot-on-sight approach does not result in a high shot conversion rate. He won't mind if he's the top player in the division this season.
The Bolton icon scored over 250 goals for the club and boasts one of England's top goal-to-game ratios, with his record coming from only 33 caps. He was also England's top goalscorer until Bobby Charlton surpassed him. He remains the country's all-time leading scorer in official international matches with 52 goals.
Bobby Charlton played for England between 1955 and 1970, scoring 52 times in the process. He is one of only three players to have won the European Footballer of the Year award (the others being Marco van Basten and Cristiano Ronaldo).
During his career, he scored almost at will against any opponent he faced, including some of the world's best players such as Alfred "Alphonso" Davies, Franz Beckenbauer, Eusebio, Nereo Rocco, and Ferenc Puskás. In fact, no player came close to matching Charlton's talent or ability to score goals.
After retiring from playing football, he went on to manage several English clubs including Leeds United, Birmingham City, and England between 1980 and 1990. He currently manages American soccer team Dallas Burn.
Charlton died in July 2007 at the age of 70 after suffering from cancer. He is considered one of the greatest strikers in English history and one of the most complete players ever to play the game.
During that time, he scored the first goal in the 2016 Europa League final, which Liverpool eventually lost to Sevilla. In the following seasons, he was mostly used as a substitute under manager Jurgen Klopp, however he was a member of the UEFA Champions League-winning side in 2019.

Sturridge's career was on course for greatness after he helped Liverpool win the UEFA Champions League in 2013. But then he suffered a knee injury that required surgery and forced him to miss the entire 2014-15 season. When he finally returned from the injury, he had to compete with new striker Mario Balotelli for a place in manager Brendan Rodgers' lineup. Although Sturridge managed to win a few starts, he was eventually replaced by Balotelli in the starting lineup.
After two more seasons at Anfield, during which time he never established himself as a first-team regular, Sturridge moved to Chinese club Shanghai SIPG in July 2017. However, he only made eight appearances for the club before suffering a hip injury that required surgery and ending his season. The following year, Sturridge returned from injury but did not play a single game for Shanghai SIPG. In January 2019, he announced his retirement from professional football due to persistent injuries. However, he recently changed his mind and announced that he is ready to resume playing football.
