Luis Suarez: Daniel Sturridge link-up will get top four
Liverpool striker believes new strike partnership could get Champions League football
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has expressed his enjoyment at the burgeoning partnership between he and Daniel Sturridge and believes it could lead to success come the end of the season.
Suarez only returned from a ten-match suspension two weeks ago but has already scored three goals in the two Premier League matches he has played in, while Sturridge scored two in the same games.
The England international now has six in seven for the season, which has put him at the top of the scoring charts in the Premier League, but it is the last two matches that have got Liverpool fans particularly excited.
Suarez and Sturridge have shown a they can compliment one another nicely, which has prompted some commentators to dubbed them the 'new SAS', after the potent Alan Shearer/Chris Sutton partnership at Blackburn Rovers in the mid-1990s.
Suarez even feels that the pair could fire Liverpool back into the Champions League this season if they manage to maintain the form that has taken them to second in the Premier League behind Arsenal on goals scored.
“When you have one big striker and a very good player in Daniel, I am so happy. He tries his best for the team and tries his best to play with me," he is quoted as saying in the Liverpool Echo.
“Last season we didn't play very well and we finished in a bad position and this season we'll try to be better.
“If we stay with the same football style and try for the win every game, we can try for the top four.”
