Daniel Sturridge: Has netted winning goals in back-to-back games for Liverpool

For the second successive week, a solitary strike from Sturridge was another to hand the Reds all three points in a Premier League contest.

The England international has now scored against Stoke City and Villa, and he admits things could not have gone much better for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Sturridge told Sky Sports: "I think we deserved it. They played some good football in the second half and they put us under a lot of pressure, but we were resilient and worked very hard as a team. That's the manager's philosophy, to be a team, and we worked very hard together.

"It was good to score. That's what I enjoy to do, and I enjoy helping the team win games. It's just important to win, it doesn't matter if I score or not. I work every day very hard with the team and we try to win as a team. If we lose, we lose as a team, and that's what it is all about."

Asked if his fine start to the season is down to increased confidence, Sturridge - who is setting his sights on the 2014 World Cup - added: "I am just playing my normal game, to be honest.

"I have probably matured a little bit in terms of my confidence and I'm playing at ease within the first team because I haven't played as much at centre-forward as I would have liked to in the past. This is just how I have been since I was kid, but I've been given an opportunity to do it in the first team.

"The ideal situation is to keep winning games and if I am on the scoresheet, brilliant. I want to make the England team for the World Cup. It's every player's dream to play in a World Cup and it's certainly something I would love to do."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
