Aldridge Praises SAS

Former Liverpool player John Aldridge has praised the strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, dubbed by the media as SAS.

Aldridge believes that the strikers who have now scored 32 goals between them are vital to the Reds chances of claiming a top four place at the end of the season.

Sturridge came off the bench at the weekend and helped Brendan Rodgers’ men pick up a first victory at the Britania Stadium since 1984 in their 5-3 win over Stoke City.

“Having him back available for the second half of the season is a huge boost. Hopefully he can replicate the form he showed when he arrived from Chelsea last January,” said Aldridge.

“The pass for Suarez’s second goal on Sunday was brilliant. It was great awareness from Sturridge and he put it perfectly into his path.”

The goal was the England international’s 10th of the season while his strike partner Suarez picked up his 21st and 22nd goals in the Stoke win.

 “We’re lucky to have two strikers who are so prolific in front of goal. It means we have the ability to win games even when we’re not at our best,” the Liverpool legend added.

“Over the past few months teams have been putting men on Suarez thinking if they stop him they stop Liverpool.”

“But what are they going to do now? We have two frontmen who strike fear into defenders and cause havoc.”

“Their movement is clever and that enables them to find space all over the place.”
