Luis Suarez – The Most Important Player At Liverpool
An absolute inspirational performance once again from our Uruguay hotshot Luis Suarez as he steers the Reds to a 2-1 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.
With his seventh goal (after netting two against Stoke City) for Liverpool in all competitions this season, Suarez has now emerged as a real threat to the likes of Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero and Robin Van Persie to win the Golden Boot award at the end of the season. Despite only four goals to his name in the Barclays Premier League, one can expect the Uruguay international to start banging in the goals in Liverpool’s next few fixtures against West Brom and Swansea City before back-to-back pivotal clashes versus Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and league-leaders Manchester City at home.
Suarez’s impressive brace against Stoke City (a video of the goals can be viewed here) meant that he currently has 3 goals out of 3 matches in the Carling Cup. Suarez’s goal tally will be ever so important as many are eyeing the Carling Cup as a chance for Liverpool to finally lay their hands on a prestigious silverware.
The number-four seems to be a lucky number for Luis Suarez now. Last season, it was his arrival that pretty much changed things around at Anfield after a devastating start to the season under the horrible era of Roy Hodgson. That very season, Suarez found the back of the net four times. Suarez then played a major role in Uruguay’s unbelievable victory in the 2011 Copa América, making him the Player of the Tournament – with four goals. Suarez returned to Barclays Premier League football fresh and satisfied after the 2011 Copa América victory, and so far he’s netted in four goals, too, in the Premier League.
Of course, I’m not expecting his goal tally to remain at four for the rest of the season (that would be utterly disappointing!), but what a wonderful feeling it would be if he manages to score four past the likes of Chelsea or Manchester City in the upcoming fixtures?
Without doubt, I do think Suarez is the most in-form and important player for Liverpool at the moment. His confidence will definitely be boosting again after the brace against Stoke City. Yes, one can say our irreplaceable skipper, Steven Gerrard, is still the most crucial player for the Reds, but it’ll take the captain some time to hit top form and Suarez at the moment, is spectacular.
