"I'll try and help him get there and give him opportunities. It's always good to get individual glories as a player because they're the things you can look back on at the end of your career and tell your grandchildren you were top scorer for that season.
"I'm sure he'll be gunning for that and I'll try to help him get there."
Sturridge was also amongst the goals as Liverpool put five past Swansea on Sunday, taking his tally to five goals in his last seven games for the Reds.
His goal came from the penalty spot and the 23-year-old was grateful to captain Steven Gerrard for allowing him to take the spot-kick.
"Stevie was very nice to me and let me have the penalty," Sturridge continued. "I guess he knew my pain and thought he would be kind to me.
"Before that, the 'keeper made some good saves and I was hitting the target. When you hit the target and the 'keeper saves it, there's nothing you can really do. The 'keeper did his job, I was doing my job - he got the better of me.
"So I was lucky that I got the penalty from Stevie and I'm happy that I put it away.
