Liverpool winger Stewart Downing believes the pairing of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge is looking good for the future.

Liverpool winger Stewart Downing believes the pairing of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge is looking good for the future.

"We can't keep relying on Luis for goals and you need someone else to chip in," said Downing.

"I think Daniel has been a good signing for us and although we missed him against Wigan, in the games he has played he gives us something different.

"The way they play, he (Sturridge) is on the (centre-back's) shoulder with Luis coming off, they are a nightmare for defenders. If we can get a good partnership with them going then we have a chance."
