Strikers will have to work together says Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers faces a tough task of keeping both Daniel Sturride and Luis Suarez happy.

Whilst the latter is due to return from suspension after his 10-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic, Sturridge has taken all the plaudits, scoring in all four of Liverpool's opening games.

The England forward has had a cracking start to the campaign, whilst marturing as a player as well.

Despite this, Brendan Rodgers has asserted that neither player will get preferential treatment, no matter how good they are as there are no stars in his new-look squad.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "Neither Luis or Daniel will be the main man. This isn't the type of club for egos. It's a club where players get told where to play.

"We don't mollycoddle them here. They are all expected to come in and do a job.

"If they want to be the superstar, if they want to be the individual, then they can go elsewhere. It's about the team here. We know what strikers are like, but I don't think it's an issue with either Daniel or Luis."

In spite of Suarez's controversial past, his ability as a footballer is undeniable. A player who could literally walk into any side, he gives Liverpool a different type of dimension with his creativity and mazy runs and Rodgers will be happy to have him available for selection once more.

If Liverpool are to try and challenge for the title, they will need both of them on the pitch.

Rodgers might have to play them both up front, otherwise one will have to drop into midfield and it will most likely be Sturridge, but after his blistering start to the season he will not be looking to give up his place without a fight.
