Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is delighted to be playing with Luis Suarez but admits the Uruguayan might leave the club eventually.
The strikers have been in excellent form this season, scoring 14 Premier League goals between them to help Liverpool to third on the table.
Suarez has bagged six goals in five games since returning from his 10 match suspension for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, while Sturridge has 10 goals in all competitions.
The Uruguayan has played down rumours linking him with a January move to Real Madrid but Sturridge is aware Suarez might leave Anfield, amid interest from several of Europe's top clubs.
Sturridge told the Liverpool Daily Post: "Everyone wants Luis to stay at the club. It's up to Luis to decide what he wants to do. If he believes it's best for him to move on, then that's the way it's got to be.
"But the club, the players and the fans all want him to stay and I'm sure he will."
The 24-year-old England international is enjoying playing together with Suarez and claims that there is nothing but healthy competition between them.
"It's great to play with Luis," Sturridge added. "We give defenders problems and we're both different. It's good to have a strike partner you can bounce off.
"We get on well and that's the most important thing. There is no rivalry there, no hidden agendas. We both go out and work hard to help the team. It's not about the SAS strikeforce, it's about the team.
"The players behind us work so hard they make our jobs easy really. We just try to do what we do best."
Liverpool were beaten 2-0 in Saturday's top-of-the-table clash with Arsenal at the Emirates, who went five points clear, but Sturridge believes they can challenge for the title this season.
"It's been an amazing start for us," he continued.
"We just need to continue working hard and continue doing what the manager tells us to do and see where we end up at the end of the season.
"I wouldn't say there is one definitive team in the league who are going to be favourites to win it. Everyone in the top six is in the race. There are a lot of teams playing amazing football, including Southampton who are up there.
"We'll just stay focused on ourselves and try our best to play good football."
