Suarez: No Sturridge rivalry

07 October 2013, 07:30

Liverpool - Liverpool striker Luis Suarez says that he and strike partner Daniel Sturridge are not interested in out-scoring each other and are just dedicated to helping the team.

Both players found the net in Saturday's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League, meaning they have now scored five goals in the two games since Suarez returned from a 10-game suspension for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

Manager Brendan Rodgers believes the duo represent one of the best strike partnerships in the league and Suarez says he enjoys playing with England international Sturridge.

"We compete for the shirt of Liverpool and we try our best for the team, not for me or him," Suarez told the club's in-house television channel, LFC TV.

"When you have one big striker and a very good player in Daniel, I am so happy.

"He tries his best for the team and tries his best to play with me."

Suarez added: "Last season we didn't play very well and we finished in a bad position and this season we'll try to be better.

"If we stay with the same football style and try for the win every game, we can try for the top four."
