Liverpool boss Rodgers: Sturridge gives us new dimension

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says Danny Sturridge offers them a "new dimension".

Sturridge's link up with Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling and later Fabio Borini showed plenty of early promise - and Rodgers is confident the No.15 will offer his side a new facet to their offensive play.

"He gave us a different dimension, real pace, working on the shoulder of the last defender and every time he's in the box you just sense that he can get a goal," said the boss. "I think good players enjoy playing with each other.

"With Daniel coming in I think everybody recognises we have a good player who is 23 years of age and has his best years ahead of him.

"You see him [against Manchester United] - and he's not even fully fit yet - he's going to be a real handful.

"For us going forward, he and one or two of the other players are going to be the real difference."
