Luis Suarez is hopeful of his 'SAS' partnership with Daniel Sturridge becoming the most successful double act in his career, according to Sky Sports.

Suarez appeared to be heading for the exit door at Anfield over the summer - but after manager Brendan Rodgers dug his heels in, the Uruguayan backed down.

Since his return from a 10-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic, Suarez has shrugged off both the controversy and questions about his commitment to the club with three goals in as many league games - forming a deadly duo with England international Sturridge. 

"Three or four years or more ago, when I played with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar at Ajax, he had a very good partnership with me," Suarez said, speaking to Liverpool's official club website.

"Now, with Daniel we are trying our best and we can improve. Maybe in a few years I will be able to say my best partnership was with Daniel Sturridge, especially if we can continue to progress.

"I am so happy because when you have a very good striker, and a very good partner, for defenders it is difficult because they have to give their attention to two players - not just one."

The Reds have made an encouraging start to the season, currently lying in third place after eight games - two points shy of leaders Arsenal, who they face in a week at the Emirates.

Suarez, however, was not getting carried away with the decent opening, stressing that the main aim was to break the top four and achieve Champions League football for the first time in his Liverpool career. 

"We know in the last few seasons, Liverpool have been not been in the Champions League and we know we can help the team challenge for the top four", he added.

"We will try our best, but Liverpool is not only Suarez and Sturridge - it's the whole team.

"Whether Danny scores, I score, or Stevie (Gerrard) or another player scores, I am so happy and so are the team.

"When you have one man in the area, it's more important. I am not a real "No. 9" in the area, but Daniel is more so and that's important for me and the team."

Suarez netted 30 goals last season for Liverpool in all competitions, finishing as the club's top scorer.
