Liverpool ace Sturridge insists he's "not arrogant"

Liverpool striker Danny Sturridge insists he's not arrogant.

Ahead of Liverpool's clash with Premier League leaders Arsenal on Saturday the 24-year-old says that view of him is not accurate.

Sturridge - who has scored 17 goals in 19 appearances this season - said: "The arrogant thing annoys me most - it annoys me a lot.

"People can't figure people out. If someone is straight faced, or they're not always smiling or if they are smiling, people think, 'I don't like that guy because he's like that'. "They automatically have an opinion of someone of how they are; their body language or whatever.

"If people's perception of me is that I'm arrogant, then that's fine. Until they meet me, they can have that perception. But everybody that knows me, knows I'm far from that."
