Suarez & Sturridge provide lessons for Sterling

Published Add your comment

Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling says he is learning lessons every day from Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, and hopes to be afforded more regular opportunities to play alongside them in the club's first-team.

Suarez and Sturridge have formed a potent partnership for the Reds this season, and their goals have propelled the Merseyside club to third place in the Premier League table, behind Chelsea only on goal difference.

The fine form of Liverpool's SAS has meant a more restricted role for Sterling so far this season, with the 18-year-old winger having made only one start in the league, along with six appearances as a substitute.

Sterling is, however, content to bide his time as Brendan Rodgers maintains faith in his free-scoring Liverpool duo, and England under-21 international continues to pick up tips from Suarez and Sturridge on the training pitch.

"I can definitely learn from Sturridge and Suarez," Sterling told the official Liverpool website.

"They've taken this season by storm and their link-up play feels like they've been playing together for a good few years now. But it's only been a short amount of time and I'm sure as time goes on they'll improve together.

"I haven't had much of a chance to [play alongside them] this season, but in training you can see what they are both about. They're quick, sharp and they play one-twos around the edge of the box.

"They're both clinical and both really good players. So I'm really looking forward to playing with them."

Liverpool, meanwhile, host West Brom at Anfield this Saturday, before a potentially pivotal clash against league leaders Arsenal the following weekend.
