Liverpool's Sturridge discusses title race and partnership with Suarez
Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge was busy this week with Coca Cola promoting the World Cup, but the England international's mind is far from Brazil still as he looks to secure him and his side Champions League football for next year. Liverpool visit Manchester United this weekend in a match that will see two of England's biggest rivals go head to head.
Sturridge currently has 18 league goals this season and will look to continue his scoring in the final nine games of the season. Alongside Luis Suarez, Sturridge has been able to form one of the deadliest partnerships in world football. The pair have been ruthless in recent weeks and Liverpool have become one of the most exciting sides to watch in the Premier League.
The former Chelsea man took some time out of his appearance to speak with the press this week and answered questions about the title race, the World Cup, and more.
"I think Chelsea are the favorites along with Man City," Sturridge said. "We go into the game working as hard as we can on the training field, working as hard as we can as a team on the pitch, in every game up until the end of the season and we'll see where our hard work takes us when the season finishes."
"I think that I've got a lot of faith in God and I've been working hard on the training field also. Those two things are the main things, I've been playing my natural game and been given an opportunity by the manager.
When asked what it would be like to face Suarez in Brazil when England and Uruguay meet up, Suarez joked around.
"I'm going to steal his boots before he gets there [Brazil] and he won't be able to perform!"
