“Liverpool are in danger of becoming a one-man team”
Love him or loathe him, Luis Suárez is a very good footballer. Despite the recent attention on his propensity to go to the ground, he’s already bagged seven goals and continues to terrorise opposition defences for Liverpool. Here, footballer-turned-journalist Adrian Clarke explains why he believes Liverpool are becoming too dependant on their ebullient Uruguayan striker.
“They are in danger of becoming a one-man team,” says Adrian. “Steven Gerrard is now past his best, so they are very, very reliant on Suárez.
“If he’s on his game, if he fancies it, if he’s in the mood, Liverpool can destroy anybody. But if he’s not ticking, if he’s not firing on all cylinders, where are the other goals going to come from? Who’s going to get them going?
“You’ve seen them dominate so many teams already this season, but they are unable to break them down. And I think that’s down to a lack of quality around Suárez, I really do.”
