Daniel Sturridge has said he is refusing to get carried away after Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over PSG in the Champions League, insisting he is just happy to be able to contribute at Europes top table once again.
Sturridge opened the scoring for Liverpool in their Group C opener, in what was his first Champions League start for the Reds since joining from Chelsea back in 2012.
They would go on to win the game thanks to a late ‘Bobby’ Firmino winner in front of the Kop to put them in control of their group, although despite beating one of the pre-tournament favourites, Sturridge said that the Merseyside club are refusing to get carried awat with the result:
“The last time [I started a Champions League game] was for Chelsea when we won it, so it is great to contribute to the team today,” Sturridge told BT Sport.
“But it’s early days so we aren’t going to get ahead of ourselves. It is a team here and everybody is going to add to the wealth of the club.”
While Sturridge said that it was great to open the scoring, although he was quick to pass on credit to full backs Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander Arnold for their performances:
“It was a great to score and it was a great ball by this man here (Robertson). Him and Trent (Alexander-Arnold) have got a competition going on, so it was good to help him out.”
