Blackburn Rovers were beneficiaries of their own SAS strike force in the early nineties
when Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton fired them to Premier League glory.

Now Liverpool appear to have found their very own dream partnership that could end the Reds' long wait for league glory.

There is no doubt that both Sturridge and Suarez have the ability to be a thorn in the side of any defence on their own. Now they have forged what appears to be a terrifying partnership there will be defences up and down the country quickly looking for plans to keep them at bay. A task which will not be easy over the course of ninety minutes.

Liverpool supporters have been graced with some truly great strikers in the past - Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Ian Rush - to name just a few from recent memory. However, Sturridge and Suarez can rival any of these Liverpool greats and go on to establish themselves as true Kop legends in their own right.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers, speaking after the victory over Crystal Palace, certainly believes in the pair and their ability.

Rodgers told reporters: “The two upfront were exceptional. Their combination play was outstanding and they are right up there with the best in this league.

"You saw the telepathic nature they have built up straight away. With those two up front anything is possible."

In just two Premier League games playing together since Suarez's return the pair have netted five goals with both strikers on target in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Anfield. Sturridge has been especially effective since his move from Chelsea in the January transfer window. He has netted 19 goals in 25 games and has managed to fill the huge void vacated by Suarez during his lengthy ban by leading the line well.

Both have pace and trickery and clearly work well together. Sturridge is exceptionally quick and strong and Suarez has that trickery and close control that can outwit most defences. It is clear to see that they have built up a  strong understanding on the training ground that has now transferred to match situations.

The key for Brendan Rogers is to keep them playing together which will not be easy. Suarez has a tendency to find trouble and if he incurs another ban then he will be of no use to Liverpool whilst sat in the stands.

Added to this I am pretty sure the big clubs of Europe will be monitoring the Uruguayan and potentially lining up a January transfer window bid. Keeping the duo together could be Rodgers' greatest challenge but I believe if he can then Liverpool could find themselves amongst the silverware once again.
