Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge insists he feels as sharp as ever and is looking forward to the rest of the season but will not get carried away by the club's impressive start.
Sunday's 4-0 demolition of Arsenal, in which the England international scored his first goal of the season, was the club's fourth successive win in all competitions to remain unbeaten.
After dealing with more nagging injuries in the previous campaign and a delayed start to this one because of a minor thigh problem, Sturridge believes he is now fully fit and with those issues resolved he has regained his place in Gareth Southgate's squad for World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia.
Eight goals in their last two games, having beaten Hoffenheim 4-2 in their Champions League play-off second leg, has raised expectations Liverpool can reproduce the form of a year ago which saw them race to the top of the Premier League in November.
However, this time around they have the Champions League to deal with and Sturridge insists that is why they cannot get carried away.
