Daniel Sturridge makes honest admission after Liverpool beat Leicester
Daniel Sturridge admits that he wants to improve his form in front of goal for Liverpool
Daniel Sturridge has admitted that he needs to improve his form in front of goal after Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday evening.
Two goals from Roberto Firmino and strikes from Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane handed Jurgen Klopp’s men the three points as they impressed against the defending Premier League champions at Anfield.
The 27-year-old Sturridge played 76 minutes of Saturday’s game and notched up an assist to help the Reds move up the Premier League table.
But the forward, who is yet to score in the Premier League this season, concedes that he needs to step his game up in front of goal.
Speaking to BT Sport after Saturday’s win, Sturridge said: “I was starting as a centre forward, I’m still not as clinical as I should be but I take it on the chin and get on with it.”
He continued: “We worked hard, it was important to come out in a new stadium and show the fans we can beat the champions, and perform week in week out at the highest level.
“For me it is all about making runs, as long as players are making movements and giving you the opportunities. I like to make runs to make space but it was a great run from Mane to make space for me.”
Sturridge will be hoping to feature for Liverpool when the Reds travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Friday night as their tricky start to the new season continues in west London.
The Reds finished eighth last season in the Premier League under Klopp.
