Liverpool legend Lawro: SAS best strike-partnership in football

Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson says there isn't a better strike-partnership in the game than Luis Suarez and Danny Sturridge.

Lawro wrote in the Liverpool Echo: "Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge aren't just the best forward partnership in the Premier League. They are arguably the most lethal attacking duo in Europe.

"I'm confident in saying that because there aren't too many leading teams who still play with two up front.

"Many play with just the one in attack, or with one player central in what is ostensibly a front three. There are even those who persist with the infamous 'false nine' with no striker whatsoever.

"Football goes through phases in terms of tactics and formations, but I always maintain your way of playing is dictated by your players.

"This is where Brendan Rodgers has been clever. He's looked at what players he has, and put three across the back to accommodate Suarez and Sturridge up top.

"The partnership is still a fledgling one but their form is fantastic. Suarez may have got a hat-trick against West Brom but Sturridge's goal was as good as anything you will see this season."
