Luis Suarez: Hopes Liverpool are back on the right track

Luis Suarez: Hopes Liverpool are back on the right track

Liverpool have arguably been the surprise package in the Premier League this season after going from seventh a year ago to battling for the top prize this term.

For Liverpool to become champions on the final day of the season they must beat Newcastle at Anfield and hope West Ham overturn leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium to spark a dramatic twist in the title race.

Wherever the title ends up this season, Premier League top scorer Suarez is confident Liverpool are now back on track to be contenders on a regular basis.

"We have many young players with bright futures ahead of them here," said Suarez.

"Let's hope this is the start of a great period for the club, where we aim even higher and achieve our goals.

"We have already achieved our target of reaching the Champions League and any silverware that follows will be welcome.

"We must keep our feet on the ground - winning the Premier League is just so difficult."

Suarez also hailed the influence of Reds boss Brendan Rodgers and says he enjoys playing under the Northern Irishman's attacking style of football

"His style of play is really positive and we always play to win," added Suarez.

"The players' confidence on the pitch is thanks to the confidence Brendan has shown in all of us."

Meanwhile, Rodgers believes a refereeing mistake could prove to be the difference in the destiny of the title.

Steven Gerrard's slip against Chelsea last month, which allowed Demba Ba to score, was seen as pivotal in handing the initiative in the title race back to City, but Rodgers believes a wrong offside call against Raheem Sterling in the Boxing Day defeat at the Etihad Stadium could define the outcome of the season.

"When someone of that greatness and ability, it's just unfortunate what happened to him, but it could have happened to anyone," said Rodgers

"It would be more unfortunate if the decision at Man City, when I got fined £8,000, might define the season. The offside. I was the guy who never speaks about referees. Sterling is clearly onside and in on goal. If we get a goal then...

"It's the only time in my life I've been fined. I knew at that time it might be significant. So that might define our season. It won't be Stevie's slip."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
