Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge: How Liverpool's new SAS have equalled the original pair of Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton
The lethal duo have now scored 49 Premier League goals this season
Sunday 30 March 2014
Luis Suarez's goal in the 4-0 thrashing of Tottenham on Sunday brought the total of Premier League goals for his partnership with Daniel Sturridge up to 49 this season, equalling the original SAS duo - Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton - who netted 49 goals for Blackburn Rovers in 1994/95.
Suarez who has now scored 29 goals, plus Sturridge, who has netted 20, are also closing in on the record of the most lethal duo in Premier League history, a record which has stood for 20 years set by Andy Cole and Peter Beardsley for Newcastle United in 1993/94, when the pair scored a combined 55 goals to fire the Magpies to a third-placed finish.
Only one other duo have scored more than 50 Premier League goals combined in a season - Didier Drogba (29) and Frank Lampard (22) totalled 51 goals in 2009/10 and Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea side won the title.
