For myself, I feel like I’m best when I’m like that playing regularly,” Sturridge said.”But the manager picks the team and I’ll never cause any issues or problems in the camp because he’s the boss, I have a lot of respect for him and for his decisions. “When I go onto the pitch it’s important for me to show what I can do. 34 – Liverpool have now missed 34 @premierleague penalties – no side has missed more in the competition (Arsenal also 34).
