Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was pleased with his strikers in victory over Crystal Palace.

Both Luis Suarez and Danny Sturridge struck in the 3-1 win.

"The two boys up front are as good as any in the league, so you know you're always going to be in with a chance with them," said Rodgers.

"There are not many better at combining. You can see the link-up that they have already. It was a really good performance by those two.

"They give you a real thrust and a real edge. If we're away from home and sometimes under the cosh, we counter-attack because we've got that pace and people willing to join in. It can be a real threat.

"If teams sit off and drop in that bit deeper, those are guys that are really clever in and around the box and can get goals.

"They were outstanding today. Those two occupy a back four on their own because of their movement and cleverness.

"When they get other players around them, they're a real threat. You saw the telepathic nature they have to play with each other today.

"For the team, it really bodes well for us going forward."
