When Brendan Rodgers talks of his side scoring from 'anywhere' and from 'any angle', fans need look no further than Daniel Sturridge's sensational back-heel to Luis Suarez against Cardiff City for a shining example.

Or simply watch the Uruguayan's stunning header against West Bromwich Albion in October, his 40-yard half-volley against Norwich City in December, or his sumptuous lob at Tottenham Hotspur in the same month.

How about Sturridge's delightful dink against the Baggies? What about the No.15's last-gasp, glancing flick at Goodison Park? Or his twisting and turning in front of Tim Howard at Anfield?

Liverpool have hit 82 goals in 30 games this season, their highest Barclays Premier League tally already, and the vast majority have been crafted and finished in breath-taking style.

Rodgers insists such an intuitive understanding between his players is not merely an instinctive one, rather, it has been crafted and cultivated out on the training pitches at Melwood.

"I know as a manager, when you are stood on that touchline, the thing you fear most in a game is the opponent and their offensive threat," he explained. "That's the thing you fear most.

"You are playing against a team who can score from anywhere, any angle, and a team that can dominate the ball.

"That's something we have developed and cultivated here; it's not something that was presented to us. Some of these other teams have spent a hell of a lot of money and are still looking to get that.

"I'm sure they will have confidence in their own way of doing it, but the confidence and belief in our own game, and our mental resilience, are improving.

"We know we can go into any game and, if we fall behind, it should give us confidence that if we stay calm, stay focused, we can win it.

"Between now and the end of the season we're going to have games like the one in Cardiff where teams don't want to open up the spaces for us because we are so clinical on the counter-attack."
