The high-flying Merseyside club's fans have started to think that the long wait for the league title will finally be over after 24 years and Glenn Hoddle puts this success down to arguably the best partnership in the league this season.

Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez who have between them scored 34 goals in 22 Premier League outings.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the former Spurs and England boss stated: "To score six goals away from home is a fantastic result.

"At the moment they are four points adrift of Chelsea but they've got a game in hand and at the moment they look so confident they believe they can beat anyone at this period of time, especially with that strike force.

"With Suarez and Sturridge up front - and with Steven Gerrard pulling the strings behind like he did - they are a force and they've got a chance of winning this Premier League.

"The key for Liverpool is keeping those front two fit because they are going to score more goals. They're telepathic and one of the best strike partnerships I've seen."

With in-form Suarez equalling Robbie Fowler's 28 goals-in-a-season and the ever improving Sturridge it's hard to rule the club out of the race considering that they beat Arsenal, a side who was top of the table for a while this season in such remarkable fashion that it could have been more than the 5-1 win for the club.

They have proved that this 5-1 win isn't a fluke by seeing off formidable opposition such as Tottenham, city rivals Everton and rivals Manchester United in a similar fashion.

Suarez was described by Steven Gerrard as 'the third best player in the world' and both statements so far have proved to be correct, it is hard to see that Liverpool would be in such a healthy position if it wasn't for the striker's contribution, Liverpool's 82 goals in 30 games, is a club record in the Premier League era.

Suarez has now got third hat-trick of the season on Saturday as Liverpool made it six wins in a row with a 6-3 victory at Cardiff, he is undoubtedly the best player in the league this season.

The Spurs legend may have been heaping praise on the SAS but also in the interview with Sky Sports he felt that there was an area which may hold the club back from achieving what the "Kopites" have hungered and desired for so long.

"Defence is the problem for them and if Liverpool don't win the Premier League this year it will be because they concede goals," he reflected.

"They'll say that they've got players who will score more than the opposition but they've still got to play top three teams and they'll come unstuck if they play like that."
