Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is enjoying life at the Merseyside club and having the chance to showcase his talents.
The England international fired a hat-trick as Liverpool beat Fulham 3-1 at Craven Cottage on Sunday, after Dimitar Berbatov had put the home side in front.
And the former Chelsea striker is keen to repay Brendan Rodgers for the faith he showed in him, after signing in January.
"For me it's all about hard work," Sturridge told the club's official website.
"It's down to me to be dedicated to my job and not to let myself, my family or my manager down. It's up to me to show what I'm capable of doing.
"The manager has shown faith in me to put me in a position where I'm able to show what I can do.
"I'd like to thank my team-mate, the manager, God and my family. My team-mates have made my job easy to settle with them. I've been praying every game - which I always do.
"I want to say thank you to all four. Hopefully I'll have a long career ahead of me at Liverpool. My family keep me grounded and make sure that I am not going off the rails.
"I'm relaxed, I'm enjoying my football and I'm enjoying being out on the football field. When the manager believes in you and gives you an opportunity, you have to go out there and work as hard as you can.
"If you can do that then hopefully, your ability will shine through."
