Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has recently admitted to BT Sport that he looks to improve on his current form in front of goal for the club.
Following Liverpool’s 4-1 victory over last season’s Premier League champions Leicester City, Sturridge has now claimed that he intends to improve his form for the side and go on to be a goal magnet for the club.
Despite the striker getting 76 minutes of game time last Saturday, the goals came from Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane.
The 27-year-old isn’t just goalless last weekend, but in fact hasn’t been able to bag a goal for the Reds this season at all.
Speaking to BT Sport (with quotes sourced from Sports Review) after Saturday’s win, Sturridge said: “I was starting as a centre forward, I’m still not as clinical as I should be but I take it on the chin and get on with it.”
He continued: “We worked hard, it was important to come out in a new stadium and show the fans we can beat the champions, and perform week in week out at the highest level.
“For me it is all about making runs, as long as players are making movements and giving you the opportunities. I like to make runs to make space but it was a great run from Mane to make space for me.”
All hope isn’t lost in the striker as his passion for the game and club still goes strong and he will be hoping to feature in the Merseyside club’s upcoming game on Friday over Chelsea, which will be a great platform for the Englishman to prove himself.
Reds fans….. Is Sturridge the man to score the goals? Or should he leave in January? Let us know below!
