Liverpool star quashes striker rift rumours

Suarez & Sturridge (Liverpool)Luis Suarez has insisted that there is not a battle between himself and Daniel Sturridge to be Liverpool’s top scoring centre-forward.

The pair have been lauded as one of the top attacking duos in the Premier League by manager Brendan Rodgers after striking up a fine understanding since Suarez’s return to the first-team.

Since the Uruguayan’s comeback, he and Sturridge have netted a combined five goals in two league games to help the Reds secure wins against Sunderland and Crystal Palace to maintain their fine start to the season.

Both players are seen as individuals by many, but Suarez is adamant that there is no glory hunting in their partnership and that they are both just doing their best for the team.

“We compete for the shirt of Liverpool and we try our best for the team, not for me or him,” Suarez told The Express.

“When you have one big striker and a very good player in Daniel, I am so happy.

“He tries his best for the team and tries his best to play with me.”

The South American star was widely expected to leave Liverpool over the summer, but the club held form to keep him at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers’ shift to a 3-5-2 set-up has allowed Suarez and Sturridge to operate in their preferred central roles, which has been successful so far.

Can Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge fire Liverpool into the top four?
