Liverpool managed a stunning 3-1 win over Sunderland during the weekend that lifted them to the second position in the table. After the match, manager Brendan Rodgers praised his strike partnership of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. Sturridge has been in great form since his £ 12 million move from Chelsea in January.
He scored one goal and set up two others for Suarez, as Liverpool secured three comfortable points. There was a danger of Sunderland being able to stun the opposition after relieving the hugely unpopular Paolo Di Canio off his duties.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez' time at Anfield has been blighted by several controversies. He has been banned for more than 15 matches as a result of two separate incidents. It is an astonishing amount of games considering that he has been at the club only since 2011.
The manager of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers, has said that he will be looking for some strikers during the upcoming pre season transfer window.
Liverpool’s performance in the ongoing season has been quite decent. The Reds have won 14 out of the 36 matches that they have played in the competition so far. They have been defeated in 9 matches and have shared points in 13. They are currently at no. 7 with 55 points.
In their last match against Everton, the Reds played a goalless draw. That was their 4th draw in the last 5 matches.
Liverpool have been showing in recent weeks that they can be real contender for the top four positions after they have made several strides up the table. However, the moment of the club has been halted by the 2-2 draw with Manchester City during the weekend.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was especially disappointed after the match given that they had only 12 min to hold on to the lead, but failed to do so due to a rare mistake from the goalkeeper Pepe Reina. Manchester City had taken the lead in the match through a goal from Edin Dzeko in the 23rd minute.
Liverpool will be playing against Mansfield Town in the third round of the FA Cup ahead of the trip to Manchester United during the weekend.
Hence, there has been a suggestion that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be resting a number of key players in order to preserve his players ahead of the crucial match. Brendan Rodgers, though, has said that he will be making no major changes to the team because he thinks of the match against Mansfield in the same breath as the match against Manchester United.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out the possibility of signing any new players in the January transfer window in order to improve the club's ailing league form.

In fact, they have regressed under the guidance of the former Chelsea assistant manager. One of the main concerns for Liverpool this season has been the lack of firing cover to the Uruguay striker Luis Suarez.
It would be fair to say that Luis Suarez has been at the centre of yet more controversy this week, with countless individuals jumping on his back following an alleged dive in the game against Stoke at the weekend. However, while everyone continues to gossip on his antics, the player claims that he doesn't care about the situation and says that he is not worried about some of the accusations that are being branded about.
The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that there is no rift between him and the owners of the club as reported by the media. according to a Liverpool fanzine.
