Despite being similar in many ways, the tricky, speedy duo complement each other very well. Suarez is undoubtedly the more skilful of the two, but both are willing runners with excellent movement, and Sturridge in particular has developed into a fine team player, showing improved decision making since his frustrating time at Chelsea.
What is unusual about Suarez and Sturridge is that they play as a pairing. Most top clubs these days tend to lead with one front-man, or a fluid selection of wide and forward players.
The traditional striker duo always used to be the ‘big man-little man’ combination, which is rarely seen at the highest level these days, largely because the modern target man usually has the pace, skill and finishing to lead the line ahead of a fluid attacking midfield. Didier Drogba and Robin van Persie probably fit this mould better than most.
In some ways Liverpool’s ‘SAS’ has a modern twist: aerial ability is not a prime concern with Rodgers' teams keeping the ball low, while both men are happy to drop deep, pull wide and act as auxiliary midfielders dependent on situation and timing.
Below is a selection of the best forward partnerships since the Premier League started in 1993. We have also included the Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo partnership as, despite the latter being primarily a winger at United, by the end of his time at Old Trafford he had developed into the striker with wide tendencies that we know at Real Madrid.

What is interesting is how high the Suarez-Sturridge partnership is on the list.
They have only played 11 Premier League matches together, but Liverpool's SAS has managed a superb 1.18 goals per game in tandem.
That is a higher ratio than two of the all-time great Premier League partnerships – Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton’s original SAS duo at Blackburn Rovers (1.11), and the Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole pairing of Manchester United (1.03).
Another learning from this list is that the stereotypical 'big man, little man' partnerships are not the most successful.
It has been a perceived wisdom for many years that you need a tall, strong target man to win the high balls and bring the smaller, quicker more skilful forward into play.
Yet Michael Owen and Emile Heskey's pairing, in eighth on our top 10, is the most successful such pairing. The top seven are all either comprised of two smaller, quicker players or two powerhouse strikers. We anticipated Niall Quinn and Kevin Phillips' Sunderland combination featuring higher, but they're not even close to the best.
That could be put down to the most successful teams - and thus by definition most successful partnerships - have a defined style of play, usually either a direct, British style or a short-passing Continental fashion.
And with movement and fluidity key to the latter, having forwards with similar attributes allows the style to be played across the front-line, and frees up both forwards to roam around the penalty area.
You can see the most successful partnership is Shearer and Les Ferdinand's brief spell together at Kevin Keegan's Newcastle, with the second-best being the Andy Cole and Peter Beardsley vintage of a few years previous.
And third is, of course, Suarez and Sturridge. Yes, it is only 11 games in, which stats nerds will point out is hardly a large sample size. But given they have only just got going, their natural understanding is so good that surely they can only get better.
And in that context, Rodgers’ claim appears to be justified, at least at this early stage. If they carry on at this rate, there is nothing stopping them becoming the best forward partnership in this era - and perhaps the greatest of all time.
