Daniel Sturridge was delighted to help Liverpool quickly put the disappointment of defeat to Burnley behind them with an emphatic win at Burton Albion on Tuesday.

The Reds ran out 5-0 victors in their first EFL Cup outing of the season as Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi netted, the No.15 bagged a brace, and Tom Naylor put through his own goal.

Success at the Pirelli Stadium secured a place in the competition's third round for Jürgen Klopp's team, as well as providing the perfect tonic after the loss at the weekend.

And, speaking after the game, Sturridge acknowledged the importance of being able to quickly move on.

"It was a great team performance and it's good to get the victory," he told Liverpoolfc.com.

"It was down to us to get the result, down to us to go out there and improve on what we did at the weekend and we did that."

It took just 22 minutes for the visitors to go two ahead in Staffordshire, but their appetite for goals did not appear to be sated at any point in the game.

Speaking of his teammates' hunger, Sturridge added: "We're like that all the time, we always want to try to keep scoring goals, keep performing, and keep making the results as good as possible.

"We want to win. We always want to win every game, regardless of the competition. It's important if it's a friendly or whatever, we always want to win."
