Brendan Rodgers insists Liverpool have the best strike pair in the Premier League after watching Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge cement their growing partnership.
Suarez scored twice on his return to top flight action after a 10-game ban, both goals set up by Sturridge, who broke the deadlock in a 3-1 win at Sunderland that pushed Rodgers' side back up to second.
The Liverpool manager expects the duo to keep on improving together, and warned their Premier League rivals: "I'm not sure there's a better front two in the league."
He added: "Of course you've got van Persie and Rooney at Manchester United, but our two are up there with the best in the country."
On the Uruguayan striker's return after his lengthy ban and summer of transfer speculation, Rodgers said it was like having "a new signing".
He said: "Luis isn't fazed by much. There's a remarkable mentality and the steel in his mindset, he's just so focused and it's like a new signing with him coming back. It's great for the team and great for the supporters, who deserve to see someone of that quality."
