Danny Sturridge admits he's proud to be pulling on a Liverpool shirt.

His opinion on the club he joined for £12million almost a month ago is in no doubt.

"There are not many similarities between Liverpool and my two other clubs," he told Sky Sports.

"When I was at City they weren't on the level of United, Arsenal or Liverpool - but nowadays they are - and when I signed for Chelsea they were a big club already.

"But the history of Liverpool means the only team who compares is Man United. You only realise how big this club is when you actually get here. It is a blessing to be here."
