Tuesday's match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur wasn't just a win for Liverpool — it was a sign of just how entertaining and interesting the League Cup can be. Often derided by many fans of the English game, we rarely get to see matches in the League Cup that are actually worth our time.
Liverpool eliminated Tottenham in the fourth round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday, and it was Daniel Sturridge who stole the show. Known for his famous dance after scoring, the English forward scored both goals in the 2-1 win -- the second coming in the second half as he bagged the nutmeg winner on the counter. Take a look. Well, that's one way to win a game. A great through ball and an even better run. But that finish? Sublime. He scores and he dances, and then he makes all Liverpool fans dance after such a fine finish. On to the next one for the Reds.
