Daniel Sturridge says he is not resting on his laurels after being described as one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers tipped the England international to become one of the most-feared finishers in the top-flight over the course of the campaign after Sturridge’s prolific start to the season.

The 23-year-old Liverpool forward has scored five goals in four games in all competitions, while he has also netted 13 goals in 17 Premier League appearances following his move to Anfield in January.

However, Sturridge, who will be sidelined for England’s World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday night, insists he wants to improve and become a better player.

“It was good to hear. It’s always good to hear positive things from your manager, especially. I’m working as hard as I possibly can and I want to improve as much as possible.

“I’m not resting on my laurels or thinking I’m complete because I know I’m not. I’m trying my best to make sure I improve all the abilities I’ve been blessed with. I won’t stop until I get to where I believe I should be.

“It’s everybody’s ambition [to be the best player in their position]. If you play as a centre-half it’s your ambition to be England’s No.1 centre-half, if you play as a goalkeeper you want to be the best goalkeeper in your country – that’s everybody’s aim.

“If you don’t aim for that, you’re aiming for the wrong things.”
