Daniel Sturridge has attributed his good start at Liverpool to worrying less about his performances, says the
The 23-year-old has found the net eight times in 14 appearances at Anfield since signing from Chelsea in a £12m deal in January.
And Sturridge, who has scored against Manchester United, Manchester City and the Blues, says analysing his own performances less intensely has helped him settle on Merseyside.
Sturridge said: “I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself to score goals because that’s the kind of person I am. I always put pressure on myself but I’ve stopped doing that so much now.”
“I’ve just tried to focus on helping the team win games and to work as hard as I possibly can on the football field because if I do that then all the natural things I do on the pitch will come out.”
The England international has seen himself thrown in at the deep end under Brendan Rodgers, with Luis Suarez’s ten-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic meaning Sturridge is now the club’s main frontman.
With the Uruguayan goalscorer also out for the first seven games of next season, Sturridge is likely to continue leading the Reds attack in the next campaign.
