Sturridge scores (again) as Liverpool defeat Blackburn

Lazar Markovic was on the mark as Liverpool defeated Blackburn Rovers 2-0 on Thursday.

Second-half strikes from Markovic and Daniel Sturridge gave Liverpool the victory in their final domestic friendly before heading to the United States on tour.

The Reds remain unbeaten over their four-game warm-up schedule in the UK.

They now jet off across the Atlantic for three International Champions Cup matches, against Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Sturridge's burgeoning understanding with Naby Keita was perhaps the highlight of the match and the pair created numerous chances before the former tucked away his goal, Liverpool's second, on 72 minutes.
