Video: Luis Suarez & Daniel Sturridge – the start of a deadly duo

Luis Suarez says he is excited to be playing so well with strike partner Daniel Sturridge at Liverpool this season.

Since returning from suspension, Suarez has resumed his mouthwatering partnership with the England international.

Suarez was again on hand to set up Sturridge for a goal in last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Newcastle Utd, whilst he had also earlier won a penalty for the Reds.

Suarez told the club’s official website, “I am so happy because when you have a very good striker, and a very good partner, for defenders it is difficult because they have to give their attention to two players – not just one.

“If maybe two defenders come towards me, this creates space for Danny. This is important not just for me, but for the team and our confidence.

“He is a very good player. He had difficult moments at Chelsea and City, but this is a good time for him and I am so happy with him.”

The pair will line-up again for Liverpool as the Reds take on West Brom at Anfield in the Premier League.
