January signing Daniel Sturridge scored his third goal in as many appearances during a 5-0 win over Norwich City at Anfield.

Luis Suarez was also on the scoresheet, collecting his 20th goal of the campaign after a smart dummy by his new strike partner.

Brendan Rodgers was delighted with their link-up play. “They linked very, very well,” he said. “Luis has done what he’s done for us all season. He’s 100 per cent every game. They are both players who are not just static.

Daniel’s got pace and power but he’s also clever. That was important for us today.”It gives the opponent someone else to really worry about.

“Suarez has been incredible for us this season and has had some young players up there with him, but we’ve now got a recognised goalscorer up beside him. Liverpool odds on

“If you look at the movements between the two of them… The second goal was a wonderful demonstration of how good players can link together.

“It was great vision of Daniel to see the run of Luis coming from the outside for Suarez’s goal. “I have seen it in training in their early parts here. Their combinations have been really good.”

With a fine display by the whole team, this second half of the season looks very promising for Liverpool.
