The Reds had to dig deep to KO Southampton on Sunday thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Sturridge cancelling out Nathaniel Clyne’s thunderous strike for the Saints.

Some fans have said that the club did not take to the game with the usual attacking verve that they became known for last term, but Sturridge believes that the club have the fighting qualities needed to fight for top honours and keep their spot in the Champions League next season.

“It is important to win games of this nature; it is important to have that belief in the squad that whether things are going our way or not, we can still win it,” he said.

“It’s very important for us to do the same this year, to show resilience and have the mentality to show we can fight as a team.

“In these instances, when we play against teams that are going to make it very difficult for us to break them down, we have to try and find different ways to win games.

“Whether it be individual brilliance, poacher’s goals, a set piece or something.

“It doesn’t matter how, we have to win these games by any means possible.

“This showed we can win the dirty games as well as playing the nice football, with the intricate moves and the one-twos around the box.”
