Sturridge's scintillating form not lost on Liverpool's Rodgers

Daniel Sturridge continued his brilliant goalscoring form for Liverpool with a match-winning double on Sunday.

The 24-year old England international made it eight Premier League matches in a row with a goal when he scored in the third and 36th minutes of the Reds' 4-3 victory over Swansea City.

In that run, he has found the back of the net ten times for a total of 18 for the season which has prompted praise from his manager Brendan Rodgers.

"He's a terrific finisher. It was a great pass for the first goal by young Raheem (Sterling)," Rodgers told Sky Sports.

"It got us off to a great start, we're very strong at home and when we get that early goal, it gives us the confidence.

"It was an excellent cross by Luis for his second and it was a good header. Dan has been working on his heading and he's picked him out really well, Luis."

Sturridge's scoring run makes him the first player to tally in eight consecutive matches, joining former Manchester United star Ruud van Nistelrooy.
