Brendan Rodgers has saluted Daniel Sturridge's consistency as he continues to prove he's among Europe's premier strikers.
The 24-year-old has netted in seven consecutive Premier League encounters, becoming the first Liverpool player to accomplish the feat following his brilliant finish in the 3-2 midweek victory at Fulham.
He now lies just one goal away from breaking the 20-mark in the English top-flight this season, despite facing two months on the sidelines due to an ankle injury.
Rodgers is not startled by Sturridge's remarkable form, however, as the forward has continually illustrated his prowess in front of the posts.
"He's up there along with Luis as the best finisher in the league," said the manager.
"I think with Daniel everyone realises when he's through on goal, it would be a big surprise if he misses. He's outstanding in the one versus one, he's got great variety in his finishing and both him and Luis are outstanding goalscorers.
"He's consistent. He's shown that when he plays, he scores goals. Sometimes for strikers you go through different spells. You might not score for a few games and then get seven in 10. But with Daniel, he's consistent. When he plays, he gets chances and he scores regularly."
