LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Brendan Rodgers is set to unleashed striker Luis Suarez on Chelsea in their Barclays Premier League clash on Sunday and manager believes the Liverpool marksman is on form to rock Stamford Bridge.
Suarez has been in dazzling form in recent games – scoring 10 goals in 15 appearances and Rodgers insists his forward is one of the best on the plant and no team in world would turn him down.
“We have one of the best strikers in the world in Luis Suarez now. Luis is up there in that one per cent of world-class strikers,” Rodgers said on Liverpool FC official website at www.liverpoolfc.com.
“There is no team in the world who would not want Luis Suarez in it. When I look at what he gives us consistently, I don’t think there’s anyone else in the division who’s better.”
Liverpool will take on Chelsea is desperate need of points and Suarez will certainly have a big role to play.
Full-back Glen Johnson and goalkeeper Jose Reina are in line for comebacks from injuries, with Johnson being the more likely returner.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are four points behind Manchester United who came back from 2-0 down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 and will look to take advantage of playing at home.
John Terry could start after sitting on the bench in the midweek Champions League win, but Ashley Cole is still out.
