Sturridge scored in the 2-0 victory, combining impressively with Keita.
Klopp told liverpoolfc.com of Sturridge: "He has looked really good for us and with the armband in the second half it's completely normal, the guy who is the longest-serving for the club and most experienced, so that was clear. He missed a chance which I think we all know 99 per cent of those situations he will score. So he played a really good game and helped us a lot, and the link-up play especially with Naby was brilliant, so good game."
Klopp also said of Keita's preseason form: "Good player, that's true. In this moment he looks very natural in the position, which is good but we have of course still to work on it, that's how it is, but it's all good so far. Fabinho I think played his best game since he came here now. He needed time to settle and it looked much more natural with him in that position, so that was good."
