Sturridge: I've been blessed by Liverpool move
Asked if he could have imagined such a start to his Anfield career, the striker told liverpoolfc.com: "I wouldn't have, to be honest.
"I want to thank God for making this possible - without him, none of this would have happened. I also want to thank the manager for giving me the opportunity to play.
"I've been blessed. It has been a difficult few years for me at my previous club, so to come here and for things to start so well, I'm delighted."
