Daniel Andre Sturridge (born 1 September 1989) is an English footballer who plays for Chelsea. He is primarily a forward, but has been used on the right flank as a winger for Chelsea. This gives him the opportunity to cut inside and take shots with his favoured left foot.

Sturridge was born and bred in Birmingham, where he joined Aston Villa, before joining Coventry City in 2002. He then signed for Manchester City a year later. He continued his development at City and played in two FA Youth Cup finals. He made his professional first team debut in the 2007-08 season, becoming the only player ever to score in the FA Youth Cup, FA Cup and Premier League in the same season. He left City in 2009 and signed for Chelsea, where he was unable to make the impact he made at Manchester City. He was loaned to Bolton Wanderers for the second half of the 2010 11 season. After showing an improvement at Bolton, scoring 8 goals in 12 appearances, Sturridge returned to the Chelsea squad for the 2011-12 season, being given more chances under new Chelsea manager André Villas-Boas. Sturridge scored four in four appearances and broke into the first-team as a result.

Sturridge comes from a footballing family as he is the nephew of former football strikers Simon Sturridge and Dean Sturridge.
