Liverpool star hails 'telepathic strike partnership'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge believes his partnership with Luis Suarez is 'telepathic'.

The duo have been in outstanding form recently, with SAS - as they have been labelled - scoring a combined 14 goals in the Premier League so far this season.

And Sturridge, who himself has scored eight Premier League goals since the beginning of the season, has hailed his partnership with Uruguayan maestro Suarez.

Speaking to the Metro, Sturridge said on his relationship with Liverpool's controversial striker: “It’s a natural partnership between us – it’s almost telepathic.

“We get on really well on and off the pitch and I think that makes a huge difference to how we play together.

“The relationship we have means we know when to pass to each other and when we’re going to make runs. It’s just a totally natural thing.

“It means we can do more off-the-cuff and instinctive things – because we’re on the same wavelength.

“I think it’s only going to improve the more we play together.”

The 24-year-old also lavished praise on Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers for giving him the confidence to express himself in the Premier League.

Sturridge, who was deemed surplus to requirements at both Chelsea and Manchester City, has gone from strength to strength since his move to Anfield in January.

“He’s given me something I’ve never had before – and that’s a chance to prove myself,” he added.

“A lot of people have passed judgments on me based on five minutes here and there at different clubs.

“But now I’m getting the run of games I’ve always wanted and I’m building my confidence. I know now there’s not the constant pressure to deliver all the time and that’s helping me develop."

Sturridge's Liverpool face their biggest test of the season so far, as Rodgers' side travel to the Emirates Stadium to play Premier League leaders Arsenal on Saturday.
