Rodgers: Sturridge can fill Suarez void at Liverpool

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has faith Daniel Sturridge can replace the void left by Luis Suarez after last season’s Premier League top scorer joined Barcelona, ESPN has reported.

Sturridge netted 24 times compared to Suarez’s 31 and Rodgers believes the former Chelsea forward can make up the difference with the Uruguay international plying his trade elsewhere. Rodgers added that he has already seen signs of Sturridge looking more dangerous than last season.

“I've seen a difference in Daniel since he came back,” Rodgers said. “He has obviously got confidence from the World Cup and his season last year. I think he's ready to take on the mantle. He got 20-odd goals last season so he's a striker of great value.”

Liverpool have signed Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton and Benfica’s Lazar Markovic to bolster their options in forward positions, as well as adding Emre Can and Dejan Lovren to midfield and defence respectively.

Rodgers added that he isn’t going to fret over the absence of Suarez, instead preferring to devote his attention to the players who remain at Anfield. “I'll just worry about the players I have, who showed in enough games last season and the season before, when we didn't have Luis, that we can score goals,” he insisted. “That won't be an issue.”
