Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is ready to take his game to the next level and rival £50million hitman Fernando Torres for a starting berth in the Blues line-up next season.

The 21-year-old starlet enjoyed a terrific second half to the campaign on loan at Bolton Wanderers, scoring eight goals in 12 appearances for Owen Coyle's side.

Torres meanwhile struggled to deal with the weight of expectation following his record-breaking January move to Stamford Bridge, so both players will be looking for a bright start to 2011/12.

"Playing at Bolton helped me a lot," confirmed Sturridge.


"When I was at Chelsea I was low on confidence because I wasn't getting the opportunities.

"Playing first team football was all I wanted. I got that at Bolton. And next season it will be important for me to get those first team opportunities.

"I feel it will take my game to the next level."
