Liverpool currently sits near the top of the English Premier League table with 16 points. On Saturday, they’ll take on a solid Newcastle United squad that currently sits in 11th place. Newcastle has the difficult task of stopping the dynamic duo of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.
“They carry a threat in front of you and in behind, which is the best threat you can have,” Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said, via ESPN FC.
”If you defend deep against them, they pick it up short and particularly Suarez starts running at you and causes you all sorts of problems, yet if you play a high line, then Sturridge’s pace is a problem in behind.
”It’s that mixture that is probably why they are having such success. It gives a back four a problem.
”But taking all of that aside, they are also great players and that makes it doubly difficult.”
