Suarez revelling in Sturridge partnership

7 October 2013 12:43

Luis Suarez is revelling in his fruitful strike partnership with Daniel Sturridge at Liverpool, and has set his sights on a top-four finish.

The duo have formed an impressive alliance for the Anfield club since Sturridge joined from Chelsea in January, scoring a combined tally of 12 goals in nine Premier League appearances they have made together.

Both players were once again on the scoresheet as Liverpool breezed to a 3-1 home victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday, a result which briefly took them to the summit of the table before Arsenal's 1-1 draw with West Brom the following day.

Suarez is enjoying his link-up with the England international and is focused on achieving UEFA Champions League qualification.

Speaking to The Liverpool Echo, he said: "We compete for the shirt of Liverpool and we try our best for the team, not for me or him.

"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.

"Last season we didn't play very well and we finished in a bad position and this season we'll try to be better.

"If we stay with the same football style and try for the win every game, we can try for the top four."

Brendan Rodgers' charges, behind Arsenal on goals scored, continue their campaign with a trip to Newcastle United on October 19 after the international break.
