Rodgers praises the deadly duo.
Following Liverpool’s 1-3 win over Sunderland, manager Brendan Rodgers has heaped praise on goal-scorers Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.
It was the Uruguayan’s first Premier League appearance after coming back from a 10-match ban and after 23 league goals in 2012/13, many wondered whether the forward could emulate that form.
Any doubters need not have worried as Suarez bagged a brace, with superb assistance from Sturridge who continued the striker’s own prolific form with a goal himself.
Rodgers has been moved to praise the pair and has said they are the best attacking partnership in the division.
“I’m not sure there’s two better in the league,” the 40-year-old was quoted by the Guardian.
“These two can be the best in the country.
“Daniel is becoming much more of a team player. They are two very different players which makes it difficult for defenders. The dynamics look good.”
Sturridge has now scored five goals in six league matches, adding to the 10 the 24-year-old scored in the latter part of last term.
The attacker was paired with Suarez for the first time this season during the mid-week loss to Manchester United in the League Cup.
There were doubts over whether the two could work together on the pitch, but both have proved those critics wrong with this mauling of the Black Cats.
Suarez meanwhile is keen to win over Reds fans once again after trying to engineer a move away from Anfield this summer.
There is one sure way the 26-year-old can do that as well and it is by scoring goals.
