Liverpool legend Didi Hamann believes the pairing of Luis Suarez and Danny Sturridge will be exciting fans.

Hamann believes pairing the two for Saturday's Anfield clash will fire the imagination of the home crowd and help secure three points for Brendan Rodgers' side.

"I think Sturridge has every chance of starting against Norwich," Hamann told Liverpoolfc.com. "There were some very promising signs from the 45 minutes that Suarez and Sturridge played together against Manchester United and I think he will be starting with Luis on Saturday.

"You'll never know how well their partnership will be until they play consistently but I think it's looked promising so far.

"It's a partnership that really excites the fans and everybody will be looking forward to seeing how they do on Saturday.

"The manager decided to keep Sturridge on the bench at Old Trafford initially because the team was on a good run - they had won seven out of nine games previous to the United match.

"So it was probably the right thing to do - to start him on the bench. He came on and had an immediate impact. He scored a goal, threatened a few times with his sheer pace and made the United defence drop deeper and deeper."
