Daniel Sturridge is in a rich vein of goalscoring form at present, performing sensationally for Liverpool.

And it turns out that the key to his success is watching himself in a rich vein of goalscoring form, performing sensationally for Liverpool.

The 24-year-old is second only to team-mate Luis Suarez in the goalscoring charts and in quotes picked up by the Daily Mirror, reveals that he likes to watch himself in action:

I watch the goals on my phone to get me in the mood and to give myself a vision of how I want the game to go. As the season has gone on, I have got more clips, but that’s good. It keeps changing and I will do the same routine against Cardiff.

The clips now last around 15-20 minutes, which is normally what the coach ride to a stadium takes - so it is perfect. It gets me in the right mood.

It makes you wonder whether Nicklas Bendtner does the same—but doesn't have enough quite goals to get himself motivated on the bus.

Let's hope Sturridge takes it to the next level and, like Leon Knight, starts supplying his own commentary on his goals:
