England forward is currently in the form of his life with the Reds.
Red-hot Liverpool front man Daniel Sturridge says that he is simply benefitting at present from playing regular first-team football at Anfield, reports the Daily Mirror.
The England international, 23, made the difficult decision to leave Uefa Champions League holders Chelsea to join the Reds for just £12 million in the January transfer window after he felt he had not been given enough opportunities at Stamford Bridge.
However, that has all changed now under the guidance and support of Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers, with Sturridge responding with some blistering form in front of goal for the high-flying Merseyside giants.
Sturridge’s hat-trick against Fulham at Craven Cottage in the Premier League on Sunday took the attacker’s goalscoring record since joining the club to an impressive 10 goals in just 13 top-flight appearances, the joint-highest number of Premier League strikes the player has ever registered in his seven-year playing career to date.
“At Chelsea, I didn’t play two games in a row as a striker,” he said. “I didn’t have an opportunity but that’s in the past for me now.
“I am a lot more peaceful and I’m playing with a clear mind.
“Before there were a lot of things going on and mentally it was hard for me. It’s difficult when you do well and then don’t play the next game as you feel, ‘What more can I do?’
“But I’m glad all that happened. God made that happen and showed me how I need to be strong mentally.
“Being strong mentally is the one thing that can separate you from anyone else.
“When I worked with Didier Drogba at Chelsea, the one strength he had above everybody was his mental strength.
“I learned a lot from working with him about what it takes to be a top player.
“Hopefully I’ll become one.”
