Sturridge delighted to score on Liverpool debut

Danny Sturridge was delighted to score on his Liverpool debut in their FA Cup win over Mansfield Town.

Sturridge had been on the pitch only seven minutes before he controlled Jonjo Shelvey's through ball to slot home the opener at the One Call Stadium.

"I enjoyed it very much," the ex-Chelsea forward said. "It was great to get to know my team-mates on the field and it was great to win the game.

"It was a great ball from Shelvey and I just got on the end of it and put it away.

"We showed a lot of character out there so we're delighted with the win."
