Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has praised the partnership of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, telling Talksport he believes that soon they will be 'feared by all'.

“One thing that’s important to remember with Andy is that he’s superb on the floor,” Gerrard said of Carroll’s positioning in the Liverpool squad.

“I know he is a big target man and sometimes as a team we have to be careful we’re not too guilty of going long too much, we need to keep passing the ball.

“If we are in a difficult game or we are chasing a game we can be more direct but the good thing to have him in our squad and why we’re so happy to have him is because we can mix it up, we can play either way now."


 

Versatility is of the upmost importance for Gerrard, and he believes Carroll and Suarez will provide that for Liverpool.

“We can play in behind, we can play long, and with Suarez running off [Carroll].

“It gives us a whole new dimension, and we believe now that we’ve got the most feared strike force in the league.”

Gerrard also praised the return of Kenny Dalglish, saying it was like the legendary manager had never left Liverpool when he returned.

“People talk about him being out of the game for a long time but it doesn’t seem that way. The way he’s been since he’s come back, it’s like he’s never been out and it’s really going well,” Gerrard said.

“We’re hoping Kenny can bring the glory days back. We know there’s a lot of hard work to do yet but there has been an improvement.”
