Liverpool legend Fowler: Players must prove themselves without Gerrard, Sturridge

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler says we'll find out what the players are made of in the absence of Steven Gerrard and Danny Sturridge.

Fowler believes the high-flying Reds face a tough task to keep up their form, with the influential pair out until the new year.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "It will be tough. Steven, in particular, is a big miss. Everything good Liverpool do comes through him and Suarez.

"Daniel maybe needs a break because he missed a lot of pre-season.

"He was scoring but his form started to dip a little bit. He was playing catch-up and getting little niggles but he'll be back to how he was.

"Brendan must tell them this is a chance for them to show people Liverpool are not a two-man team."
