Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes Kenny Dalglish has the right mix of strikers at his disposal to ensure the Reds can achieve success.

Anfield's all-time record goalscorer has been enthused by the recent exploits of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, while Rush was also pleased to see Craig Bellamy return to the club.

And with Steven Gerrard also on hand to provide the assists - as well as Dirk Kuyt in reserve - Rush believes the Reds have the makings of a strong side.

"It's always pleasing to see so many options - we've got four or five strikers who can change a game," Rush told the official Liverpool website.

"They're different options and make Liverpool stronger than last season.

"It was great to see Steven Gerrard and Craig Bellamy come on to strengthen the team against Everton - and that's what Liverpool have got this season.


"I think we can go onto better things now with those striking options. If it's not happening in a game for 60 or 70 minutes, we've got two or three options to bring on from the bench."

Rush, meanwhile, feels that Suarez and Carroll are beginning to form a potentially formidable partnership, after both scored in Sunday's win at Goodison Park.

"When Andy and Suarez are playing together, I think Suarez can move into space off him," he added.

"He's a very good reader of the game and he's on fire at the moment. He looks eager to play, gives 100 per cent and that's what supporters want."
