Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has heaped praise on hat-trick hero Luis Suarez and his understanding partner Daniel Sturridge following the Reds’ 4-1 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
Uruguayan striker Suarez was just unstoppable and his stunning individual display kept Liverpool within two points of Arsenal’s reach in second spot of the Premier League table with 20 points.
Rodgers reiterated his stance on one of the most formidable partnerships in the English League so far in the ongoing season saying: “They’re very hard to contain. Both of them have different qualities and both are goalscorers.”
After West Brom pulled a goal back from the penalty spot through the in form James Morrison, many had thought the Baggies were up to staging a comeback but Sturridge ended any thought of that 15 minutes from time with a delightful chip.
The pair have been involved in 14 of Liverpool’s Premier League goals this season.
“I thought our midfield three today were excellent. We’re just looking to keep improving, not getting carried away, and the boys at the top end did their job and got the goals,” Rodgers added.
Liverpool hosts table-toppers Arsenal next weekend and it was important they keep up the pressure on Arsene Wenger’s men, who despite been reduced to ten men earlier in the day, secured a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace.
“It should be a brilliant game (against Arsenal) next week.”
