Liverpool’s ‘SAS’ understanding hailed as “incredible”

The duo have 10 goals together in eight games started together and combined to help each other to goals against Sunderland last Sunday as the Reds ran out 3-1 winners at the Stadium of Light. Sturridge set up both of Suarez’s goals.

The pair have been receiving rave reviews all week, with manager Brendan Rodgers using his 3-5-2 formation to accommodate both of them.

For Moses, who has been sitting in the pocket just behind them, ahead of the midfield, the Nigerian says it’s been a delight to watch.

“We all know Suarez and Sturridge are both great strikers and probably two of the best strikers in the Premier League at the moment,” the 22-year-old told Liverpool’s official website.

“Suarez coming back is a big boost for us and linking up with Sturridge up front is really vital for us this season.

“I think they can both do as well as they want this season as a pair of strikers. The most important thing is that they score for us. I can see them both scoring more goals in every game because their link-up play is incredible.

“I’m just here to do my job and try to support them in any way that I can to make sure that they score more goals.

“Daniel is the same in training as he is in the games. You can learn a lot from him because he is an experienced player as well. I’ve played a lot of games and I’ve been around him a lot, and it’s a pleasure to play alongside him.”

Crystal Palace‘s defenders are the next to face dealing with ‘SAS’ when they visit Anfield on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.

A victory for Liverpool would take them top of the table. Kick-off is at 3pm and a full tactical preview can be read here.
