    After a slow start with him I’m starting to really like this card. No goals in his first 3 games, he’s now played 10, scored 8 and assisted 9. I’m playing him RS, 4-2-2-2 next to POTM Aubameyang with a sniper card on him.

    He doesn’t feel 90 pace but quick enough. His left foot is magical, both shooting and passing. He’s also good at taking the ball in tight situations and moving it on. Excellent positional sense. Somehow the ball gets attracted to him.

    I’ve only hit one shot on his right foot , a 10 yard finesse goal across the face of the keeper and surprisingly, for having injury prone trait and low stamina, he’s not been injured and last 2 games no problems.

    He’s replaced Prime Vieri for these 10 games and the way things are looking, he’s staying in the team.

    41212(2) with POTM Auba for me. They link up to well together and POTM hazard is like a little magician behind them feeding them both.

    Another game, another goal and 3 assists. I think Vieri will soon be Zanetti. He wins his fair share in the air too. Packed nothing, cost me 25k on top of untradeables, most notably Rakitic and Iniesta. Already had 2 IF’s costing 35k in total. Bargain in my eyes

    Just played my first 2 games with him, absolute beast. Leading the line for me with POTM Hazard and POTM Lucas as LF & RF, the 3 of them linking so well.

    Can't see it being a problem unless you're a team press/constant pressure user

    No I'm on xbox haha. But they're only nerfing constant pressure and team press stamina so they can't charge around for a full 90 minutes I think.

    I play balanced on PS4. POTM Lucas loses more fitness than Sturridge.

    he's is pretty meh tbh. Ive used him for 10 games with 2 goals and 6 assists. His linkup play is very good BUT he doesn't seem to score very much. Also the 2 star week foot will impact your chances at times. Overall, he's a fun card to use but you I doubt he'll win you games by himself. Not enough of an impact of a player.

    I love him. For price he’s the perfect striker in a formation with wingers. He can hold up play and pass and with his speed can run defenders out of position and open up space for the wingers to run into. I think as a 2 striker formation he wouldn’t be as good because you would rely on him to make plays on his own but for hold up play I love him he’s so versatile. Don’t notice the weak foot has outside of the foot shot so and time I’m to the left of goal I just shoot cross body

    Personally I’d just buy a player for 130k instead but some people like flashback cards

    I has some untradable he would cost me like 30k more and also i never sell players who are 84 so i have them already

    Personally I consider untradables to hold value too (but that me). For example if i could do Sturridge for FREE (which i can), I wouldn't be able to do the next one for free. Because Sturridge doent really interest me and will probably not play much its a waste of cards. I can buy a ST and then resell him if I do not like it.

    On the plus side you get some packs but not worth it for me

    I used his loan card, scored 7 (the majority with his weak foot) and assisted 2 goals in 4 matches, Division 5. However, the SBC is a bit too expensive for my taste.

    I was wrong. His stamina didn't deplete fast and he was brilliant. I'm 9/10 in the WL and scored 5 first game with him. His w/f is trash though

    He is brilliant his stamina isnt a issue neither is his weekfoot those stats dont feel anywhere near that in game.

    His left foot is a beaury and has a crackibg finese shot currently has 21 goals in 11 games for me in the weekend league

    Being a Liverpool fan and a massive Sturridge fan, I really want to do this. My team has no place for him and I would have to make a second to use him..

    I've got the teams ready to go but I think i'll wait until tomorrow and see what comes out. It will cost like 120-150k.

    They both play very similar but sturridge just seems to make better runs and gets into better positions
