Daniel Sturridge insists Liverpool are more than capable of filling the gap left by Luis Suarez following his summer exit.

Suarez has joined Catalan giants Barcelona and Sturridge insists the Anfield outfit must "move forward" and not dwell on the striker's exit.

The Uruguayan finished as Liverpool’s top scorer in each of his three seasons with the Premier League club and Sturridge formed a fearsome partnership with Suarez at Anfield, but the England international is confident that there is enough talent within the Liverpool squad to cope with the loss of the 27-year-old.

"It was a unique partnership, and I wish Luis all the best. We shared some good times together. We created history with our goals and became the most successful Liverpool partnership in one season," Sturridge, 24, is quoted as saying by the Guardian.

"But in terms of next season for the goals, I'll step up myself and everyone has to. It's everyone's job to do that, the new boys who have come in as well as the players who have been there all season. We will move forward as a team."

Liverpool have already invested heavily this summer in the likes of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Dejan Lovren and Sturridge remains in confident mood ahead of the new season.

He added: "This is a huge club, with a lot of players who can step up. Luis has left. That's football, he's moved on. For me, with the signings the manager has made - exciting players, young players, up-and-comers as they call them - we are going to have that winning mentality.

"We will still have the mentality to move forward, be an exciting squad, playing attacking football and that's the Liverpool way. Whether we are underdogs or favourites, it will not change our mentality. We are a young, hungry squad looking to put our stamp down, not just in the Premier League but Europe as well."

Sturridge finished as the second highest scorer in the Premier League last term with 21 goals, while Suarez managed 31.
