Daniel Sturridge, who scored Liverpool’s game-winning goal against Southampton during the Reds’ 2-1 at Anfield in their Premier League opener on Sunday, says he thinks the squad is stronger now that Luis Suarez has departed for Barcelona. Suarez scored 31 goals in 33 games for Liverpool last season en route to winning the EPL’s player of the year award.  Asked if Liverpool is better without him, Sturridge said, "I think so, with the players we've brought in. No disrespect -- he's a great player and will be missed -- but we move on."

Meanwhile, coach Brendan Rodgers revealed that he received a good luck text from Suarez on the morning of the Southampton game. "His heart will always be with Liverpool," Rodgers said after the win. When asked about the eight players he has brought in since Suarez’s departure, the Welshman said:  "Our ambitions have to be bigger than one player. We're bigger than any one player, I still think we need a striker so we'll search through until the end of the window for that.” He added: "I don't think anyone has given us hope of getting in the top four. We loved the challenge last season and that is what we look to recreate."
