Reds ‘not reliant’ on Suarez
Defender Glen Johnson is adamant Liverpool are not overly
reliant on their star striker Luis Suarez.
The Uruguay international has already scored 10 Premier League
goals so far this season while no other Reds player has managed
more than one.
The issue adds further weight to the impression that, if Suarez
does not find the net, neither do Liverpool – as was the case at
Swansea on Sunday when the Merseysiders were held to a goalless
However, Johnson does not feel the Anfield giants are too
dependent on their ?22million front man.
“We are not relying on Suarez at all,” said the 28-year-old.
“Obviously he is our main striker, but we are not relying on
“It’s everyone’s job to get around him and try and score.
“You need a bit of luck in front of goal and on another day we
might have had
two or three (against Swansea).”
Brendan Rodgers’ side are now eight games unbeaten in the top
flight having recorded four wins and four draws.
And Johnson believes the Reds have a solid base from which to
climb the standings as they prepare to face Tottenham.
“We will keep going and if we do get that bit of luck it will be
okay,” added Johnson. “It is a big game (against Spurs) and
hopefully we will pick up three points.”
