Manchester United manager David Moyes believes there is no debate to be had about the identity of the deadliest pair in the Premier League - his top strikers are unquestionably the best.

The Old Trafford boss is yet to get his side playing at full throttle this season and the sensational form of Liverpool's Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge has started a discussion about who can be called the best strike partnership in the league.

Given the label SAS - previously used for the Alan Shearer/Chris Sutton combination at Blackburn Rovers - Brendan Rodgers has seen them score 14 times between them in only nine matches, taking the Anfield club to within two points of leaders Arsenal.

However, Moyes has insisted the Liverpool pair are still not good enough to surpass the deadly duo he has at Manchester United, in the form of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

Though they have not been as prolific as Suarez and Sturridge so far in the defence of their Premier League title, Moyes is sure they will dispel any doubt about the premier leading pair once they approach top form.

Wayne and Robin, on their day, will be a match for any players in the world, never mind just in this country. So when those two are firing, they are the best," he told reporters.
