Suarez & Sturridge combination may not work, says legend

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Brendan Rodgers will have a difficult job fitting Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge into the team together.

Sturridge has been in fine form so far this season scoring in the Reds' opening four league games, meanwhile Luis Suarez has been serving the final games of his 10-match suspension.

And after Sturridge's most recent goal, in Liverpool's 2-2 draw away at Swansea City, Carragher has questioned just where Rodgers will fit the English international and Suarez into the same team.

Speaking on MNF, the ex-Liverpool star said: Luis Suarez will have to play, he's a world-class player. It will be interesting to see whether he [Rodgers] puts Suarez or Sturridge in to a wide position. I think he tried that a bit last year and it didn't work for me.

"It's all about getting Philippe Coutinho in the middle and that's where you'd expect Luis Suarez to play as well, but these are problems that Brendan Rodgers didn't have last season - selection problems.

"These are problems that managers say that want. It's something for them to juggle, but these are things he never had to contend with last season."

Liverpool currently sit top of the Premier League after 10 points in their opening four games.
Rodgers' side take on Southampton this weekend before travelling to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the League Cup.

The game against their great rivals is expected to mark the return of Suarez in a Liverpool shirt and the Uruguayan will hope to make an instant impact against David Moyes' side.
