Sturridge: "It's all about the team"

Daniel Sturridge says not putting pressure on himself has been the key to his impressive start to the season and that he's completely bought into the manager's 'team first' philosophy.


Speaking to LFCTV after scoring the only goal in Saturday's 1-0 win at Villa Park, Sturridge revealed: "I'm going out there to enjoy myself. I don't put pressure on myself to score goals. It's weird, I have things going through my head at night and I'm thinking about moves in the game and I can't get to sleep! I'm enjoying myself, this is what I've wanted to do my whole life and now I'm playing to just enjoy the game and not play with any stress."


As well as the fantastic skill he showed in scoring his second winning goal in consecutive games, the striker caught the eye with his work rate and defensive contributions, something which he says is instilled in all the players by Brendan Rodgers. "I ended up in the right back position sometimes but that's what it's all about, we win as a team. The manager stresses it's not about individuals it's about working hard and playing as a team. It's about working hard on the training field and going into games knowing that if your mate needs help that you're gonna be there for him."
