How good can Liverpool's "SAS" become?

There has been a long tradition of lethal strike partnerships formed at Liverpool, from Keegan and Toshack, to Dalglish and Rush to Beardsley and Aldridge, so can Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge add their names to that exalted list?

The dynamic duo have already forged a formidable partnership for the Reds by finding the net five times in just under five hours of playing time togetherwith at least one of them finding the net in each of the Reds' last five games.

Both prefer playing through the middle, but both are equally comfortable drifting deep and wide, and some of their link-up play has shown encouraging signs that a fruitful connection could develop.

There's an old saying that "strikers hunt in packs," but with plenty of teams now opting to field just one lone ranger, the art of a troublesome twosome is gradually disappearing from the game.

But these are early days for the newly formed brotherhood, and they've still got plenty of goals to score to catch up with some of the most prolific tandems to have doubled up in recent years.

I rank the six most effective strike partnerships in the history of the Premier League.

Can Suarez and Sturridge make this list?
