Liverpool forward hoping to fire the Reds to victory and backs Raheem Sterling to continue improvement
It was no surprise to find Barcelona acquire the services of Luis Suarez for £75 million, with a gaping chasm now needing to be filled by Liverpool when it comes to attacking prowess.
Brendan Rodgers has already looked to start plugging the gaps by acquiring the likes of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana, although the chief scoring responsibility rests with Daniel Sturridge who finished second highest scorer in the Premier League last term.
Sturridge is someone who is clearly relishing the challenge of leading the line now that Suarez has left for Barcelona, with the England international looking to improve his strike rate and ensure the team are embroiled in another title tilt.
We missed out on winning the league last season which is kind of hurtful, but we are moving on now and we are looking forward to next season,’ Sturridge told the Jamaica Observer.
‘We are looking forward to a big year, it is going to be a big season and we can’t wait to go on as it is going to be amazing.
‘It is a great feeling [to play for Liverpool]; it is a lot of people’s dream to be playing for a club like Liverpool, and so I am living my dream and I am thankful for everything that has come my way.
‘I am looking forward to the future, as I said before, it is going to be a big deal for me and I am really excited.’
