Daniel Sturridge is targeting silverware at Liverpool FC this season following their strong start in the Premier League.

The England international has been in promising form under Jurgen Klopp in the current campaign despite his career at Liverpool FC being in doubt in the second half of the 2018-19 season.

Sturridge came off the bench to score a brilliant equaliser to help Liverpool FC secure a 1-1 draw with Chelsea FC in their Premier League meeting at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

The 29-year-old scored a stunning leveller from outside the Chelsea FC area to leave the English capital with a vital point in what promises to be a tight title race.

Sturridge’s equaliser in west London was his second goal in successive games after the Three Lions striker broke the deadlock in the first half of their 2-1 loss to Chelsea FC in Carabao Cup third round.

The Liverpool FC striker has struggled with a string of injury of problems over the past four seasons at the Merseyside outfit despite having a proven goal record.

Sturridge is hoping that he can finally win a trophy at Liverpool FC following previous disappointments in the League Cup, the Europa League and the Premier League.

“I’ve enjoyed every minute I’ve been here – through the highs and lows of playing, not playing, being successful and being unsuccessful,” Sturridge told Liverpool FC’s website.

“The whole process of being at Liverpool, the journey, has been great. It’s just about now winning something; I don’t want to have been here for a long time and not have lifted one trophy.

“I can never look at the past and say, ‘I wish we’d won the league that year’. Obviously, it hurts. But it’s a new season now and we have a chance to do it again.

“We have a chance to win the Champions League again; we have a chance to win the FA Cup again. This season is just full of excitement because we know we have an opportunity – just as much as everyone else has an opportunity.

“I don’t want to put expectations out there that we might do this or that; I just want nature to take its course. I’m really positive about it, I have the belief. Everyone in the club has the belief, the fans have the belief, that we can do something this year.”

Liverpool FC lost to Manchester City on penalties in the Carabao Cup in February 2016 before the Reds suffered a 3-1 defeat by Sevilla in the Europa League Cup final in Basel after Sturridge broke the deadlock.

The Reds lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev back in May but Sturridge missed the clash due to being on loan at West Bromwich Albion.

The former Manchester City striker succumbed to injury during his loan spell at West Brom to raise serious questions about his future at the 18-time English champions.

Sturridge netted 21 goals in 28 games in the Premier League in 2013-14 to help the Reds challenge for the title before Brendan Rodgers’ side missed out to Manchester City.

The Liverpool FC striker netted his 50th goal in 103 games in the Premier League for the five-time European champions in the current campaign.
