Luis Suarez hails Liverpool’s togetherness

Luis Suarez says it is important that Liverpool are now playing more like a unit as they look to continue their progression up the Premier League.

Suarez signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool in December, and now the club will hope to attract new players to play alongside him, whilst building a team that helps the club and Suarez achieve their ambitions.

Suarez believes the team’s success this season is largely down to players knowing each other’s games, as well as having a tight defence.

“Last year, we knew we could play better,” Suarez told the club’s official website.

“This season we try to play together more, with Raheem, Philippe and Daniel, now he is back. Jordan and Stevie help us in the box.

“But also, if we didn’t have a really good defence or very good goalkeeper, you can’t stay at that level. We are together and that is important.”

Liverpool hope to have both Mamadou Sakho and Daniel Sturridge fit for Sunday’s game at the Britannia Stadium.

Sakho has recovered from a hamstring injury sustained in Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at Chelsea last month, whilst Sturridge has been missing since November with ankle ligament damage.

Stoke City vs Liverpool gets underway at 4.10pm and it’s live on Sky Sports in the UK.
