Sturridge Enjoying Anfield Life

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge was delighted to score a goal on his home debut after his arrival from Chelsea and admits that he is thankful for the opportunity.

Sturridge struggled for chances at Chelsea before joining the Reds and has begun life at Anfield with a bang after becoming the first player since Ray Kennedy in 1974 to score in each of his first three games with the club.

The England international was a constant threat in their emphatic 5-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday and admits that he enjoyed his home debut.

"I enjoyed it very much," said Sturridge. "I want to thank God for the opportunity and making me put on a Liverpool shirt, without him this wouldn't be possible.

"I'd like to thank the manager for giving me the opportunity also.

"It's great to be here and it's a world-class club. I have world-class players with me like Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard, not to mention all the other players, but in terms of me being here at this club, it's great."

Regarding his strike partner, Suarez, he added, "It's good to play with him, we've been training well together and I think it's only gonna be a matter of time before we gel properly.

"At the moment it's going well but it's gonna get a lot better than this because we've only played with each other for a couple of weeks so we don't really know how each other play but it seems to be clicking."
