Robbie Fowler has implored Liverpool's attacking players to provide more assistance for Daniel Sturridge.
The 25-year old striker has had his fair share of injuries this season which have restricted his output to just 11 Premier League appearances.
?Sturridge scored his fourth league goal of the season in Sunday's 2-1 loss to Manchester United, three of which have come since his return, which has prompted Reds legend Fowler to suggest that he needs a little help up forward.
?Fowler is aware that Sturridge is not yet at his absolute best after an injury-interrupted few months but has backed the former Chelsea man to continue scoring if the likes of Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho can assist with the scoring burden.
?"What happens is when you first come back into the side, you get by on adrenalin. And then all of a sudden it just hits you. You are playing catch-up. He missed a lot of games and he looked sharp and looked good when he came back," Fowler told the Liverpool Echo.
?"But then there's that little bit of a momentum loss. He's not playing as well as he would like but you know what - he's still scoring goals.
?"His movement and sharpness is probably not what it was when he first came back but he'll get it right.
?"Because I'm a forward I think it's not just about him. We shouldn't be putting pressure on Daniel to score goals, we need other players to weigh in as well.
?"We need the Raheems to score, we need the Coutinhos to score - he's obviously doing very well at the minute - we need other players as well.
?"You want all your team to defend but you want all your team to weigh in with some goals as well, I think that's probably what we want more than anything."?
