Ahead of the new season, Jamie Carragher has gushed his admiration of Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.
Speaking to the Anfield Wrap in a podcast, Carragher spoke of how he expected Sturridge to rise from Suarez's shadow and assert himself as one of Europe's top strikers.
“I don't think he gets enough credit, I've mentioned it before," he said.
“He’s not Suarez, we know that. I remember times last season when I was in the Main Stand. In the Everton game he and Suarez were going hammer and tongs at each other, they were still arguing at the halfway line and the manager brought Sturridge off.
"I’d have done the other one.
“I felt at times that Suarez bullied him a little bit. I know with strikers there’s sometimes a little bit of a jealousy thing there, if someone’s scoring.
“I felt for him at times. I think he got the rough end of the stick at times with him and Suarez.
“I'm not saying they never got on, but they both wanted to be the main man scoring. Now there’s no doubt he’s the man."
Since joining Liverpool in January 2013, Sturridge has scored 31 Premier League goals in 43 games - a record that beats Robbie Fowler's 28 in 43; Michael Owen's 22 in 43; Fernando Torres's 29 in 43 and Luis Suarez's 15 in 43.
Yet, whilst the other four were considered world class at various stages of their Liverpool career, Sturridge has struggled to get the same acclaim.
“Look at his record: I think I’m right in saying he’s got more goals after 50 games than any Liverpool player ever. If you look at the strikers Liverpool have had that’s an unbelievable achievement… He could be the best striker in the league.”
“Think of the ability he’s got to get goals: He’s got class, he’s got pace, he scores all sorts of different goals, he’s cool when he’s going through on goal, he’s England’s main striker now and he could be one of the best in Europe.”
