Daniel Sturridge has revealed he has a healthy relationship with Luis Suarez both on and off the pitch as the pair continue to develop an unstoppable partnership for Liverpool's attacking line-up.
Suarez marked his return from suspension with a bang for the Reds, scoring three goals in his first three games back in action for the club.
After a summer full of controversy the Uruguay international looks to be back to his best and while for much of last season he shouldered most of the goal-scoring burden for Liverpool Sturridge is now serving as another go-to man in front of goal and as a result the side are flying in the Premier League.
And Sturridge has revealed that he also gets on with Suarez off the field, with the duo giving each other advice to get even better and give opposition defences a tough time.
"It's a beautiful thing to have the relationship on the field with him," he told KICK OFF Magazine.
"We have a good understanding, have assisted each other on different occasions and it's a great feeling. We help each other and improve each other and we also get along off the field."
Sturridge made the move to Liverpool from Chelsea last January and has so far proven to be a genius purchase by Brendan Rodgers who the summer before had failed to land a replacement striker for the outgoing Andy Carroll.
The manager appeared to learn from his mistakes and signed Sturridge early in the winter transfer window and as a result Liverpool's striking options look much sounder than in recent seasons when the squad have ended up outside the top six come the season's end.
Competition for a top four finish will be tougher than ever this campaign but if Suarez and Sturridge can develop a successful understanding Liverpool will certainly be in the mix alongside the Manchester clubs, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea.
