Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge has said he gets on well with "nice guy" Luis Suarez off the pitch - and has a "great chemistry" with him on it.

The pair have contributed five of Liverpool's last six goals in their last two Premier League games against Sunderland and Crystal Palace.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes Sturridge and Suarez can become one of the best strike partnerships in the Premier League, and Sturridge says he enjoys playing alongside the Uruguayan.

"He's a nice guy and we have great chemistry on the field, and we get on well off it so it's good," the England international told Life and Times.

"It's easier when you've got somebody like Luis, who can help you share the goals out, and we've also got the likes of Steven Gerrard and Victor Moses who can pitch in.

"So there are goals throughout the team. Hopefully we can continue with the form we've got at the moment."

Liverpool have made a fine start to the season, currently sitting second in the table, and Sturridge believes Rodgers has installed a winning mentality in the squad.

"It's not intense but there's a strong desire for success and everybody wants to help Liverpool get back to the winning ways that they had in the past and that's up to us," added Sturridge.

"Everybody wants to have success. It's not about getting by and being content with second or third.

"It's about having a winning mentality and that's something the manager's instilled in us now, where everybody's got that feeling to want to win every game."
