Liverpool 1-0 Queens Park Rangers – Premier League – 10th December 2011

From alleged racist remarks to theatrical falls to one digit hand signals, Luis Suarez has rapidly turned into Public Enemy No. 1 (outside the red half of Liverpool, obviously). However, against a decent QPR side at Anfield, the Uruguayan did what he does best, and netted a vital goal for the home side.

Kenny Dalglish’s side dominated the 90 minutes, with Rangers’ ‘keeper Radek Cerny keeping his side in the game on a number of occasions.  However, Suarez’ goal on 47 minutes, coming after good work from Charlie Adam, was enough to end Liverpool’s disappointing run of draws at Anfield.

The visitors pushed hard to grab an equaliser late on, forcing a number of corners but failing to make any of them count.

The Reds move back up to sixth while Rangers move into 13th place, five points clear of the relegation zone.

    Not enought goals from Liverpool. Major concern.

  2. Riley says:

    Agreed. Too many wasted chances, as has been the story all season. We need to bring in a clinical finisher in January. There’s been a few rags reporting that we’re after David Villa, which will certainly never happen, but he’s exactly the kind of player we need. Oh well, hopefully this win will help us pick up some momentum with a pretty easy run of fixtures coming up.

  3. Mr. T says:

    IMHO what we really need is a powerful striker whose natural game is playing off the shoulder of the last defender, so that Suarez can drop into the hole without attracting the attention of the opposition back four. A striker like that would open up so much space for Suarez and could be a target for the excellent passing work that Suarez displays when there are teammates running off the ball around him. Needless to say we really need a striker who can finish off opportunities.

    In the last match Suarez was dropping deep and then waiting for one of the midfielders to run past him/run level. A striker playing off the shoulder of the last defender would even further increase the already impressive goal scoring/creating potential of Suarez. Carrol is no good at this as firstly, he does not seem to be any good at anything, and secondly, playing as a target man he drops in deep on too many occasions to come and contest long balls.
