Liverpool faith key, says Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge says the belief Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has shown in him is the reason for his goal scoring form at Anfield, ESPN has reported.

Sturridge was speaking to the Anfield Wrap podcast and said that at his former club Chelsea he suffered by being shunted around the pitch and not getting a run of games in his preferred position.


“I was never sure if I'd play as a striker [at Chelsea] because people didn't believe in me,” Sturridge said.


“I was often asked to play in a different position and to do a job for the team but, having been a striker and then being asked to just flick a switch and play on the wing was always going to be difficult because mentally you're going to play the way you always have and I play on instinct.


“I think that now I'm just playing the way that I did as a kid but I'd never had the chance to do that. When I was playing as a winger at Chelsea I was overthinking it because I wasn't used to doing it.”


Sturridge added that the difference now is he is able to play without thinking and do what comes naturally. “It's about that split second when you have to decide whether you do this or do that whereas now I'm just playing on instinct.


“I'm just doing the natural thing, playing my natural game and doing things off the cuff. Like the goal against Aston Villa, it happened so fast that I had to watch a video of it afterwards to see what I'd done.”


Sturridge scored on Sunday as Liverpool drew 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion, netting his 17th goal of the season to keep the Reds in fourth place in the league table.
