Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool striker will not put pressure on himself

The 23-year-old admitted he was satisfied with eight goals from 14 appearances so far following his January transfer from Chelsea.

Sturridge insisted that he was more concerned with assisting his team-mates in creating scoring chances rather than netting himself.

He said: "It's great to score goals but the main factor when I joined the club was just to help Liverpool move forward.

"I don't want to put too much pressure on myself to score goals because that's the kind of person I am. I always put pressure on myself but I've stopped doing that so much now.

"I've just tried to focus on helping the team win games and to work as hard as I possibly can on the football field because if I do that then all the natural things that I do on the pitch will come out.

"So my mentality now is to ensure I am in tip-top shape and at my optimum best to be able to help the team.

"If I score goals along the way then fantastic, if I get assists fantastic, but the main thing is for the team to get positives results and for us to come out of the season on a high."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
