And fellow pundit Keane could’t stop grinning as the Sky Sports studio exploded into laughter at a self-deprecating jibe from Sturridge on live TV.

The smart-suited former England star reckoned the match gleamed as bright as his silver buckle – which fans compared to a “seatbelt”.

But even that wasn’t the comparison Sturridge made to his clothing accessory as he delivered an enthusiastic verdict on an Anfield classic.

Second-placed Liverpool remain a point and a place above City after an epic draw.

And Sturridge said: “It was exhilarating. It was back and forth – chances, challenges, a lot of drama, a penalty, this and that.

“It was just a brilliant game for all to see. It was a rollercoaster ride. Buckle up like my blazer!”

Manchester United legend Keane smiled broadly at how Sturridge seamlessly threw in that dig at his own belt.

And the ex-midfield hardman continued to beam as the post-match discussion continued.

Viewers had already teased Sturridge over his stand-out buckle.

In fact, one congratulated him on “wearing his seatbelt in the Sky Studio, can never be too safe” while another joked, “Strap yourselves in folks”.

And after Sturridge gave his views on a scintillating stalemate, fans jumped in with more fashion observations.

One posted: “Funny dude, nice game yeah, no doubt” then a second viewer simply said: “Haha Sturridge”.

And a third asked mischievously: “Why did the cameraman zoom in his blazer?”
