The Reds won 5-0 away to Nigel Clough’s Championship outfit on Tuesday evening, as they cruised into round three.
The 26-year-old believes the response the players gave was badly needed, and also touched upon the hunger within the squad.
“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.
“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.”
Origi looked sharp against Burton, while Sturridge showed exactly what he can offer against the Brewers, particularly with his ruthless second goal on the night.
The England international was deployed on the right-hand side on Saturday, but Sadio Mane has that role nailed down from the start, when fit.
It is a good dilemma for Klopp to have, with a battle for places always healthy, and all will become clearer on Saturday lunchtime.
