Sturridge is a natural, says Liverpool boss Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has branded striker Daniel Sturridge as ‘a natural’ after the England man netted twice against Swansea City on Sunday, ESPN has reported.

Sturridge has now scored in eight consecutive Premier League games, matching the record set by Ruud van Nistelrooy in 2001. The brace against the Swans came in a 4-3 win at Anfield and took Sturridge to 22 goals for the season.


“He's a natural goal scorer,” Rodgers said. “He looks like he can score in every single game. He's got the ability, he's got the quality and thankfully he plays for us here and has still got a lot of improving to do.”


Despite his pleasure at the win - which keeps the Reds in the title hunt, four points behind leaders Chelsea - Rodgers was critical of his side’s defending.


“We did not defend anywhere near well enough in any aspect,” the former Swansea boss added. “The problem is it is not coaching. Some of the things we concede goals in, you can't coach that.


“There's a feel when you are in the game of how to defend and you have to use your experience to defend properly. We concede poor goals. It isn't so much structurally. It's mistakes or decision making that cost us.”


Liverpool remained in fourth place over the weekend but after defeats for Tottenham Hotspur and Everton, against Norwich City and Chelsea respectively, Rodgers’ team have moved six points clear of Spurs and 11 points ahead of Everton, who were overtaken on goal difference by Manchester United.
