The Uruguay international netted his third goal in two Premier League appearances this season to give Liverpool the lead against Crystal Palace at Anfield.
The 24-year-old, who was called up to England’s squad earlier this week, added a second before Steven Gerrard polished off a 3-1 victory over the Eagles.
Sturridge and Suárez have now scored 11 goals in their last nine appearances together, and Liverpool boss Rodgers revealed the role that he wants the pair to play in his side.
“Sometimes you can play in different positions and, knowing the two players well, I’ve played them in a number of positions,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.
“I’ve played one of them up top and one in a semi-wide position; I’ve played Daniel up through the middle and Luis in behind as a No.10.
“They are both what I would call nine-and-a-halves, in terms of how they get in between defenders and can drop in short and go long.
“We wanted to put the two of them up there and obviously then we look at the structure, with the players that we have, in behind that – whether that is a 4-4-2 diamond, 3-5-2 or sometimes a flexible 4-4-2.
“But with the players that we have at the moment, the 3-4-1-2 suits us and those two were exceptional.
“In the first half in particular today, some of their combination play and link-up was outstanding. They are right up there with the best in this league.”
