Sturridge surprised by goalscoring form

Published Add your comment

Daniel Sturridge is enjoying his current run in the Chelsea team and admits he is pleasantly surprised by his goalscoring form after netting again in the Blues 3-1 victory over Everton in the Barclays Premier League.

The 22-year-old striker opened the scoring for Andre Villas-Boas' side just after the half hour mark, to net his fourth goal of the 2011-12 campaign, as he continues to seize his opportunity in the first-team.

"In the first team it's the best I've ever played," Sturridge told ESPN. "In the youth team and things like that, I used to do this pretty regularly, but it comes as a surprise to me because I'm doing it in a professional game. I'm enjoying it and I'm glad that I'm taking it into the first team.

"I think we played a great team game. The manager told us to move the ball quickly and to play one-touch football as much as possible, and I think we did that - we played very well."


The victory maintains Chelsea's 100 per cent record at Stamford Bridge this season, and other than the defeat at the hands of Manchester United, the Blues have made an impressive start to life under the Portuguese tactician.

Sturridge has been pleased with the team's progress since Villas-Boas took over, and maintains the team can still challenge for honours this year.

"I'm happy for everyone not to talk about us, so we can get on with what we're doing," he added.

"It doesn't matter whether people talk or not, just as long as we can continue beating every team that's put in front of us. It doesn't matter what the opposition is, we want to win every game."
