The England striker was, at times, just as good as Suarez, however, due to the Uruguayan’s unbelievable goal scoring form, Sturridge was in the shadows a lot.
And former Liverpool teammate Jamie Carragher has today said that Suarez bullied his partner last season.

Carragher said: ““He’s not Suarez, we know that.
“I remember times last season when I was in the Main Stand. In the Everton game he and Suarez were going hammer and tongs at each other, they were still arguing at the halfway line and the manager brought Sturridge off. I’d have done the other one.
“I felt at times that Suarez bullied him a little bit. I know with strikers there’s sometimes a little bit of a jealousy thing there, if someone’s scoring.
“I felt for him at times. I think he got the rough end of the stick at times with him and Suarez.
“I’m not saying they never got on, but they both wanted to be the main man scoring. Now there’s no doubt he’s the man.”
