AVB: We must stop Suarez

Luis Suarez: Liverpool's biggest threat, says Andre Villas-Boas

Luis Suarez: Liverpool's biggest threat, says Andre Villas-Boas

Spurs go into the game unbeaten in five matches and on the back of a 4-1 thumping of Anzhi Makhachkala 4-1 in the Europa League.

They will face one of their trickiest hurdles of the season this weekend when Suarez comes to White Hart Lane having scored 15 goals in his last 11 matches.

And Villas-Boas admits that they will have to be at the top of their game to stop the Uruguay international.

"He's a player going through a wonderful individual moment," the Spurs boss said.

"He's full of the confidence. We have to be aware of his strengths. He's a player that individually can solve the game.

"So we have to be aware not only of the people that feed him but the actual individual moments of brilliance that we saw this season, that have been so decisive for Liverpool.

"He's a key player for them and very difficult to stop."

Villas-Boas' position came under scrutiny a few weeks ago after their 6-0 hammering at Manchester City. But a good run domestically and in Europe has eased the pressure.

"We have had a good recovery and a good response from the team from that setback," Villas-Boas said.

"If we manage to get a win against Liverpool we're completely back on track with the top teams.

"It's a big, big game for us - we won't be that far off, even if we don't win that game."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
