Sturridge excited by the prospect of ‘telepathic’ partnership with Suarez

Daniel Sturridge believes his partnership with Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez can go down as one of the greats.

The two have forged an impressive early understanding in Brendan Rodger’s side and Sturridge believes it can only get better with time.

“It’s early days but the signs are that we’re playing well together. I’m sure that will continue,” he told The Telegraph.

“As you play with someone more regularly, you do things telepathically, you know where they’re going to be and you start playing off the cuff.”

Sturridge returns to Manchester City on Sunday hoping to prove a point to his old employers after he left the club for Chelsea in 2009.

While he showed potential and promise at City and then Chelsea, the 23-year-old believes we will now finally see what he is capable of after a fine start to his Anfield career.

“It’s always a weight off your shoulders if you start quite well,” he added.

“It has been a good start. I’m hard on myself and I like to do a lot better than I am doing. There’s a lot more to come from me. I’ve been performing OK but this is a fraction of what I’m actually able to do.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to show what I’m really capable of doing in the months and years to come, when I’m playing week in, week out and I’m fully fit.”
