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."
