Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers highlights the contrasting talents of in-form striking duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has explained the differing qualities of strikers Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.

The forwards have scored four goals in just two games together in the Premier League this season, with Sturridge the top scorer in the division with six strikes, and Rodgers has highlighted the contrasting abilities of the two players.

"Their qualities are different. If you look at Luis, he's a great box player," Rodgers told the club's official website. "He's got wonderful feet in and around the box, he can make things happen out of nothing, he always has defenders on the back foot because of his trickery, and he can finish left foot or right foot.

"Daniel is a different type altogether; he's got all-round great qualities. He's got a great touch, is very strong on his left side and his right side, he's got super pace - once he's away, he's away, you're not catching him.

"So [Suarez] will always ask defenders questions, especially in and around the box where they have maybe got to dive in a bit more. The area that [Sturridge is] looking to improve on is his heading, as he showed last week away at Sunderland. He's a boy who I still think there's a lot of improvement to make."

Both players were on target in Saturday's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.
