Regarded as one of the greatest players to have represented Liverpool, Ian Rush has said that he is delighted at the start made by Liverpool especially due to the strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. Suarez recently made his return to the first team after a ban of 10 matches from last season.
He has immediately former great partnership with Sturridge, who has been in sensational goalscoring form since the start of the season. Sturridge is currently the top scorer in the division, while Suarez already has three goals to his name. The duo have already combined to devastating effect in some matches.
Rush was a great striker during his playing days for Liverpool. He managed to score almost 350 goals for the club in two spells. There has been talk about Sturridge or Suarez winning the Golden Boot at the end of season. Suarez could have won this trophy ahead of Robin van Persie had it not been for the ban in the final few matches of the last season. Rush is confident that either one of them will be capable of winning the Golden Boot. There is a lot of danger of Suarez leaving Liverpool in the summer, but those rumours have been put to bed for the moment.
"They have got a chance. Last year, the two best players in the league were Suarez and Bale. Suarez surprised me with how many he did score, I knew he could make goals, but he had an incredible season. I thought he was superb and he seems to have taken it on again. He has come back from his suspension and started scoring goals again. Sturridge had a great start to the season, scored in the first three or four games," said the former striker, who is regarded as a legend at the club.
