Suarez - partnership bearing fruit

Liverpool's Luis Suarez insists he and strike partner Daniel Sturridge are trying to progress "for the future of the club".

The pair have scored 17 goals between them since the latter signed from Chelsea in January and have shown in their link-up play they are a pairing to be feared.

Suarez's future at Anfield seemed in doubt over the summer after a £40million plus £1 bid from Arsenal and the player claiming the club had reneged on a deal to allow him to leave for a Champions League side.

However, having slotted back into the side seamlessly after the end of his 10-match ban Suarez is looking to drive Liverpool into the Champions League alongside Sturridge.

"We are trying for progression," he said.

"He is 24 and I am 26, so we are trying our best to progress for the future of the club.

"We know in the last few seasons, Liverpool have been not been in the Champions League and we know we can help the team challenge for the top four.

"We will try our best but Liverpool is not only Suarez and Sturridge - it's the whole team."

Suarez has previously said there is no competition between him and Sturridge to score the most and he admits he is enjoying playing with someone who is in a prolific run of form, with the England striker having hit 20 in 26 appearances.

"I am so happy because when you have a very good striker, and a very good partner, for defenders it is difficult because they have to give their attention to two players - not just one," he told liverpoolfc.com.

"If maybe two defenders come towards me, this creates space for Danny.

"This is important not just for me, but for the team and our confidence.

"He is a very good player. He had difficult moments at Chelsea and (Manchester) City, but this is a good time for him and I am so happy with him.

"For a striker, it's more difficult (to look for a team-mate). In the area, you're concentrating on yourself and shooting at goal.

"If he shoots or if I shoot, we are both strikers and we understand. We can discuss it on the pitch but we work really well together.

"Maybe in a few years I will be able to say my best partnership was with Daniel Sturridge, especially if we can continue to progress."
