Daniel Sturridge believes Brendan Rodgers’ footballing philosophy should mean Liverpool are challenging for silverware in the near future.

The Reds were in sparkling form in the second half of the campaign as the 18-time English champions scored 27 goals in 12 outings, losing just once during that eye-catching run.

Rodgers has instilled an attacking ethos since replacing Kenny Dalglish at Anfield last timmer, with his January signings of Philippe Coutinho and Sturridge, plus his four summer arrivals signalling the manager’s intent.

And the England international is enjoying playing under the Northern Irish coach – who he worked with at Chelsea – and reckons the Reds will soon be challenging for trophies again.

“With the philosophy that the manager has, we should be challenging for honours,” Sturridge told Liverpool’s magazine. “I think it’s going to be great for us in the future and we can move forward.

“I think we did things last season, both prior to me coming here and then with my help, to deliver some better statistics than we have had in previous years in terms of goals and attacking play.

“It’s exciting to be part of that philosophy and the new regime that the manager is forming for us to move forward as a club.”

Sturridge has scored 10 goals in 14 appearances for the Reds after completing a £12m move to Liverpool from west London side in January.
