Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with their attacking duo Danny Sturridge and Steven Gerrard.

Rodgers thinks the strike duo's partnership, which has blossomed incredibly quickly, will make a difference to Liverpool in the final three months of the campaign.

"They are two top players but they have got different qualities and different strengths," he said.

"You have seen Luis' all season - his cleverness and his movement and his intensity in his game.

"When I came in everyone was talking about his finishing, how many chances he missed and whatnot but you look at his conversion rate this year, his chances and the goals he has put away, he has been brilliant.

"He is a terrific focal point for the team.

"Daniel is a different type. He is hungry for goals, wants to play on the shoulder and his movement is really good.

"People will associate him with pace and power and running ability and shooing ability but when both of them play in and around each other, they find space really well.

"With Daniel, you have got that possibility to play in behind and penetrate and go over the top and in between and when he is away he is very hard to catch because he is so fast.

"They are a real potent threat so that partnership and that cohesion is growing all the time and it is pleasing to see."
