Martin Skrtel believes the devastating impact Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge's partnership had at Sunderland on Sunday is an indication of what's to come from the pairing.

As well as opening the scoring, Sturridge also provided both the assists for Suarez's double as Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners at the Stadium of Light.

Skrtel is confident they'll continue to go from strength to strength while operating in tandem.

He told his official website: "I am happy with the result. We played really well and we deserved this result.

"I am also happy for Luis because he needs his goals. I think everyone could see how good those two [Sturridge and Suarez] were and I think they can form a great partnership. We will see what that brings."
