Kenny Dalglish is confident that the joint firepower provided by Liverpool strike duo Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez will increase the Reds’ chances of enjoying success.



In their last two Barclays Premier League appearances, the pair have combined to phenomenal effect – notching five of the team’s six goals between them against Sunderland and Crystal Palace.
Having formed arguably the most lethal partnership himself with Ian Rush during the 1980s, few, if any, are better placed to judge the merits of Sturridge and Suarez than Dalglish.
The Scot has observed an instant understanding between the No.7 and the No.15 and expects their performances to heighten Liverpool’s prospects going forward.
“It is a pleasure to see how well things are going at Liverpool at a time when the club has made such a fine start to the season,” he wrote in his Daily Mirror column.
“It is nice to be able to talk about a striker partnership at Liverpool, too, because so many clubs are playing one up these days that there aren’t many partnerships around.
“The partnership between Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge is still in its infancy but it looks very promising. In a short space of time, they seem to have established a great understanding with each other.
“They are both players of great quality and whoever they are playing against, they are going to be a real handful for the opposing defence.
“The Uruguayan has come back from his suspension looking as sharp as ever and Daniel has made an unbelievably good start to the season. He is revelling in the responsibility he has been given.
“It is always more difficult to score goals than it is to prevent yourself conceding them. And the heartening thing for Liverpool fans is that when you have the kind of firepower the club now has at its disposal, there is always a heightened chance of being successful.”

The 62-year-old made a return to Anfield last weekend after it was announced by owners Fenway Sports Group and the club that Dalglish had accepted an invitation to become a non-executive director.
He then attended the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain awards to present a special recognition honour to Margaret Aspinall of the Hillsborough Family Support Group on behalf of the families fighting for justice.
Dalglish added: “It was a privilege to be asked to go back and join the board of Liverpool Football Club last week.
“If it happened, it had to be in agreement with the owners and with the managing director, Ian Ayre. But most importantly, it had to have the agreement of the manager Brendan Rodgers for me to consider it.
“The manager is the most important person at the football club and I shall be doing my utmost to give him whatever support I can.
“Both the club’s principal owner, John Henry, and chairman, Tom Werner, have made statements about my return and when I can be of help to them, I will be.
“I happen to think that the most important announcement that took place regarding the club last week was that the Hillsborough Family Support Group had won a Daily Mirror Pride of Britain award for their unceasing campaign to achieve justice for the loved ones who were taken away from them.
“Everyone at Liverpool Football Club has total admiration for the HFSG and it was right and fitting that they should receive an accolade for the way they have conducted themselves.
“The club has always been about having close contact with its supporters. They continue to be a source of great pride.”
