Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson hailed the performance of Danny Sturridge after their thrashing of Newcastle United.

Henderson was also quick to acknowledge the role Sturridge played in the victory.

"Overall it was a great performance by the team," Henderson told "We were at them straight from the off and we scored some good goals as well, so we are over the moon.

"Daniel is a top player. I played with him before he signed for us with England U21s quite a few times so I know what he's all about.

"He's got great movement, he's got great technical ability and he's been brilliant since he came here."
