Daniel Sturridge says he has learned a lot from Liverpool striker Luis Suarez since moving to Anfield.

The England striker has scored 21 goals in 24 appearances in all competitions for the Reds this season, with his Uruguayan strike partner finding the back of the net 24 times.

And the 24-year-old, who moved to Liverpool from Chelsea in January 2012, revealed how the senior players at the club have helped him grow as a player, whilst also praising manager Brendan Rodgers.

The senior players have helped me so much and helped all the young players who have come into the squad

“I’ve learned a lot from Luis, but I have been given the opportunities to play now and that is what is more important than anything else,” Sturridge told Liverpool’s website.

“If you’re not given an opportunity then you can’t produce. If you don’t play as a young player, it is difficult to progress.

“It is about the team, it is not about myself – it’s not about me feeling amazing or anything. I am just humbled to be given the platform to play for my club and my country.

“The senior players have helped me so much and helped all the young players who have come into the squad. We don’t know what these occasions are like. They’ve been through all of this before us.

“I am just doing what I used to when I was a young player. I have been given a platform to be able to perform and I don’t get too excited about anything.

“I am humbled by everything that is going on right now. I am grateful to God and grateful to the managers for believing in me. I am happy with the way everything is going.”
