The Baggies midfielder has been joined by another loanee, with an England striker making a move in the wake of an FA Cup defeat to his new club

Liverpool have been trolled by West Brom midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak after taking the decision to loan Daniel Sturridge to the Baggies.

The England international striker is set to see out the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign at The Hawthorns after agreeing a short-term switch away from Anfield.

He has made that move after struggling for game time under Jurgen Klopp this season, with the 28-year-old in need of minutes if he is to stake a late claim for a place in England’s World Cup squad.

West Brom are prepared to offer him those opportunities, with Alan Pardew in need of a proven goalscorer to help lift his side out of the Premier League relegation zone.

Sturridge is a man with 74 top-flight efforts to his name, so could be an ideal addition.

Liverpool may also be left to rue their decision to move him on, with Philippe Coutinho's sale having already depleted their attacking unit during the winter transfer window.

Klopp’s side have wobbled on the back of that deal, with their latest setback coming against West Brom in the FA Cup fourth round.

Krychowiak has been quick to remind the Reds of that fact, with Sturridge having linked up with the Baggies in the wake of a 3-2 reversal for his parent club.

Sturridge was left out of Liverpool’s matchday squad as they tumbled out of the FA Cup, with Klopp once again favouring other options.

With that having become an all-too-familiar theme of late, the former Manchester City and Chelsea forward is looking forward to opening a new chapter with West Brom.

The Birmingham-born frontman said upon his arrival: "Coming here, I'm back home. When I've played here, it had a home feel for me. I'm seeing faces in the stands that I've known growing up. It's a good feeling for me being here. I want to enjoy myself as much as I can but getting results is our first priority.

"God willing I'll be able to help the team win games. That's the most important thing. Whether it's goals, assists, hard work, all of those things.

"It's important for myself and for the team to implement the manager's plans, his tactics, take those on board and learn the way the team plays as quickly as possible."
