Suarez netted twice and Sturridge got one as the pair rubbished suggestions they couldn't play with each other in the 3-1 win.

On Suarez Rodgers said: "He's getting the reward for his hard work over the period he was off.

"He was excellent the other night against Manchester United and him and Daniel are a real real handful."

Rodgers added: "You see the partnership with the two and it works really well.
