Liverpool striker Sturridge: Suarez and Chelsea's Torres very similar

Liverpool striker Danny Sturridge has likened teammate Luis Suarez to Chelsea forward Fernando Torres.

The England star is now half of one of the Premier League's most feared frontlines - and he reckons his partner in crime Suarez is similar to Torres.

Sturridge said: "I don't feel there is that much difference between them as they are world-class footballers, although obviously they have contrasting styles.

"Torres is more of an out-and-out goalscorer and Luis is a bit more like me, where he can play through the middle but drop off and have a dribble at different times.

"They have both scored goals for fun in the Premier League and Torres was frightening at Liverpool.

"They are great finishers in their own right but I didn't play in a front two with Torres, so it's difficult for me to make an accurate comparison.

"I love playing with Luis and we link up so well together, but I was out on the wing a lot when I was in the same team as Nando.

"It's worked out better for me at Liverpool and it's really clicked with Luis. I feel privileged to have shared a pitch with each of them."
