Despite scoring on his Liverpool debut, Danny Sturridge says he can do a lot better.

Despite scoring on his Liverpool debut, Danny Sturridge says he can do a lot better.

The 23-year-old failed to convert further chances that followed in the FA Cup win over Mansfield Town and Sturridge - who last played a senior match in November - hopes an improvement in his physical condition will help him demonstrate a more clinical edge.

"I haven't had much training. I've only had three sessions with the lads and then a light session on Saturday before the game," Sturridge told the Liverpool Echo.

"I am lacking sharpness in front of goal. I missed a few chances but hopefully once I get my fitness those ones that I missed will go in.

"It was a great pass from Jonjo - the vision and the weight of the pass for the goal was perfect. He made it quite easy for me to take the shot first time.

"We haven't had much time to work on stuff but we were both on the same wavelength. We get on well on and off the field.

"All the lads have been great with me and they've made it easy for me to settle in over the past few days.

"I want to say thank you to them for making me feel so welcome. I look forward to playing with them for many years to come."
