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