Suarez and Sturridge - who Reid will try to stop on Sunday - are the leading scorers in the division this season with 29 and 20 goals respectively.

You have to go back to December 29 to find the last time neither found the net in a league game for the Reds.

And Reid says their fellow professionals will look no further when it comes to the PFA Player of the Year of the Award in the coming weeks.

"I think it'll be one of those two," Reid said. "Suarez has had a fantastic season. He missed the first five or six games as well so it's amazing what he's done and I'm sure his name will be right up there.

"And Daniel Sturridge has had an amazing season as well. "They're good at what they do, they've got good movement, I think they link up well and they're dangerous in the box.

"You need to get tight to them and make sure they don't turn and run at you because if they run at you, you're in trouble."

West Ham's Andy Carroll will hope to gatecrash the striker party on Sunday.

Carroll joined Liverpool for £35million in January 2011 but failed to impress and was shipped out on loan to the Hammers, before joining West Ham on a permanent deal last summer.

After missing the first five months of the season with a foot injury, Carroll has given the Hammers a welcome boost in recent weeks, scoring twice in his last four matches.

"He could make the difference on Sunday," Reid said. "He's our main striker and he's done well for the team since he's come back and he's scored a couple of goals so hopefully he can do that until the end of the season.

"For him as well it will be nice personally to play against his old team which he came from to us.

"Hopefully he can get a couple of goals and we can win the game."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
