Who are the best attacking partnership this season?

With the Merseyside derby at the weekend between Liverpool and Everton - we evaluate whether The Reds strike partnership of Sturridge and Suarez is actually the best in the Premiership.

Looking ahead to this weekend's fixtures, one game is the definite highlight - that is the Merseyside derby of Everton vs Liverpool. 

The footballing world will cast an eye upon the match that kicks off at 12.45pm on Saturday to see who comes out on top in this bitter rivalry... and to witness that lethal SAS strike partnership again.

SAS is of course the Liverpool partnership of Suarez and Sturridge. With these two up front, Liverpool's attack is consider not just one of the best in the Premier League but amongst the top in Europe.

But how great are they? And how do they compare to other attacking partnerships in the Premiership?

So far this season, both have scored eight league goals a piece and, with Sergio Aguero of Manchester City, are the joint top-scorers in the Premier League.

Collectively, they have contributed 16 of Liverpool's 21 goals this season - which is 76% of The Reds tally. There is, however, a pair that contribute a higher percentage than SAS; Roberto Soldado and Gylfi Sigurdsson have scored 77% of Tottenham's goals - but Spurs have only scored 9 all season!

The closest attacking partnership to SAS trail behind with 13 goals between them - Manchester City''s partnership of Yaya Toure (5) and the aforementioned Sergio Aguero.

Liverpool's bitter rivals Manchester United have their own lethal pairing in the shape of Wayne Rooney (5) and Robin van Persie (7) who have notched 12 between them.

League leaders Arsenal have scored 22 goals as a team, with 50 % of them coming from two players. Those players are Aaron Ramsey (6) and Olivier Giroud (5).

So with the evidence laid before us, we have to admit that Liverpool's sacred SAS are the best attacking partnership in the league. But, the real question is, can The Reds keep their excellent early form up?
