The Reds pair have taken the Premier League by storm over the past 10 months as Sturridge and Suárez netted a combined 33 goals following the England star’s move to Liverpool from Chelsea.
The 23-year-old forward and the Uruguayan both netted in a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday, and Rodgers believes there are subtle differences between Sturridge and Suárez.
“Their qualities are different. If you look at Luis, he’s a great box player,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.
“He’s got wonderful feet in and around the box, he can make things happen out of nothing, he always has defenders on the back foot because of his trickery, and he can finish left foot or right foot.
“So he will always ask defenders questions, especially in and around the box where they have maybe got to dive in a bit more.
“Daniel is a different type altogether; he’s got all-round great qualities.
“He’s got a great touch, is very strong on his left side and his right side, he’s got super pace – once he’s away, he’s away, you’re not catching him.
“He’s clever in his movement and his runs, he’s a good footballer; he drops into spaces, picks up the ball, sets the game, spins. He’s also got an eye for goal.
“The area that he’s looking to improve on is his heading, as he showed last week away at Sunderland. He’s a boy who I still think there’s a lot of improvement to make.
“When he does, I think he can prove to be one of the top strikers in European football.”
