The England striker has held down the fort while the Uruguayan completes a 10-match ban.
Liverpool legend Gary McAllister is adamant Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez can form a devastating partnership at Anfield.
Suarez is closing in on a return from a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic last season and could make his first appearance of the season in the League Cup third round clash against Manchester United on September 25.
But with the Uruguayan on the comeback trail, Sturridge’s position in the Reds attack will come under increased scrutiny despite scoring five times in the Merseyside club’s opening four matches, including the winning goal in all three of their Premier League games thus far.
McAllister, however, dismissed suggestions that Brendan Rodgers must choose one or the other to operate as Liverpool’s lone forward and believes the strike duo possess the intelligence to work in tandem together.
“Suarez is a sensational player,” he told talkSPORT. “Love him or hate him, you can’t argue with the fact he’s a fantastic footballer.
“When you’ve got players like that you find a way to fit him in to the team. Sturridge and Suarez are best played through the middle but Suarez is more adaptable, he could play either side. Suarez is clever enough to play in and around Sturridge.
“Liverpool have started the season really well. Daniel Sturridge has been on fire. He’s a player that I have always admired. I just hope he can continue it.”
