Liverpool striker Danny Sturridge was proud of his performance for the 2-2 draw with Manchester City. Sturridge was pleased with his showing, but ultimately disappointed that seventh-placed Liverpool, who held the lead themselves for only five minutes, could not come away with a victory.

Asked if he thought it was his best performance for Liverpool yet, the England international said: "I'd say so, although I've not been here very long.

"In the first few games I've lacked fitness, but I feel sharp now and I feel like I am playing and training more like myself.

"There is more to come from me, but I was pleased with the performance today.

"It was end-to-end stuff, great for the neutral.

"We are gutted, though, to be fair, because I think we should have come out of the game with three points.

"We are disappointed, but I suppose it is a point against a team who are challenging for the title, so we will take that."
