The former Manchester City and Chelsea man has come into his own this season and leads the line for the Reds today against City in a huge title deciding game.
Sturridge has admitted that he watched on in awe of idols such as Ronaldo and Ronaldinho as a kid and wants to emulate them in his game as much as possible.
The England man knows his own form has been impressive but knows it isn’t enough to settle on.
It’s vital to watch great players and see how they get past opponents.
“When I was younger I watched Michael Owen’s Soccer Skills and then studied Ronaldo and Ronaldinho. Ronaldo – R9 – used to do skills and tricks that got me out of my seat all the time.
!I used to watch Ronaldinho at Barcelona and think, ‘Oh my god, what am I seeing here?!’ Then you’ve got Zidane, who was so elegant that everything was effortless for him. He would glide past people at will.”
