The noses of the Premier League leaders may remain unbloodied, but some
serious punishment has started to be dished out to the rest and in Daniel
Sturridge and Luis Suárez, already developing a potent partnership, Rodgers
may have paired the ultimate tormentors.
City will feel especially harassed having conceded another five on
top of the battering they received from Liverpool
in their own home match earlier in the season.
Sturridge continued a streak matched by only six other Liverpool players –
scoring in his first three games for the club – and Suárez again showed why
only Robin van Persie and the sanctimonious sainthood currently stand
between him and the Player of the Year award.
Pick apart the Uruguayan’s character as much as you like, but if you do not
enjoy watching him play, you do not like football.
Any apprehension that the South American – prolific as a lone striker – would
be compromised to make way for his new partner were emphatically banished.
