West Ham United defender Winston Reid was happy with his performance in Sunday's defeat to Liverpool.

Reid certainly rose to the challenge against Luis Suarez, an encounter that has cemented his admiration for the Premier League's top marksman. That said, New Zealand's skipper is still hopeful of further improvement before the summer is upon him.

He told West Ham TV: "I mean he [Suarez] is a class player, so you can't really give him too much time on the ball. He had a couple of actions out there on Sunday and you could see he was a good player.

"I've been out for four months with my ankle and it's still getting better. I feel maybe that I still have another ten, 15 per cent to work on until I'm there 100 per cent. I'll work hard every day to make sure I'm there. This is how I feel personally. There's a little bit more sharpness to get out there and hopefully I can get that before the season ends."
