Liverpool boss Rodgers: Much more to come from Sturridge

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says there's much more to come from Danny Sturridge this season.

The striker fired 24 times in just 33 appearances last term, making him the highest English goal-getter in the Barclays Premier League.

Rodgers said: "I looked at the combination of Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert in training today and they were exceptional; the link-up play and some of their combination play was great.

"I think you'll see Daniel go on another level again this season, with the confidence of a full campaign last year and scoring the goals he did. Hopefully he can stay injury free this season.

"We've [also] got Rickie Lambert who will get goals for us. He's starting to really get comfortable with the group.

"We've got a number of players that go and facilitate the role [of goalscoring]."
