Sturridge goals exceptional - Rodgers

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says the returning Daniel Sturridge made "the difference" for his side, after the striker scored twice in a 3-2 win over Aston Villa.

James Milner scored after two minutes to put Liverpool ahead and Sturridge's brace won the game for the Reds, despite Rudy Gestede netting two for Villa.

Sturridge's goals were his first in the Premier League since March.
