Liverpool legend John Aldridge is backing Luis Suarez to shine against Manchester United this weekend, with the striker hoping to back-up his brilliant performance against the Red Devils last season.

Dirk Kuyt scored a hat trick in Liverpool’s 3-1 demolition of United towards the end of last season, but Suarez nearly outshone the goalscorer with his skill and trickery on the day.

And now Aldridge – who himself scored against Manchester United when playing for the Reds in the 1980s – believes that Suarez can pull off another brilliant performance and show Liverpool's rivals who the real boss of Anfield is.


"Make no mistake, Alex Ferguson will be very, very wary of Suarez this weekend," Aldridge told the official Liverpool website.

"He knows his side have a lot of defensive flaws that can be exposed. They have been great going forward, fantastic to watch, but they are vulnerable.

"Even the likes of Basle and Norwich have shown that recently.

"If Suarez brings his top form, Liverpool will be in a great position. He ran United absolutely ragged when the sides last met back in March.

"He made all three goals, and gave the United defenders nightmares all afternoon. Dirk Kuyt got a hat-trick, but Suarez was the star man."

Liverpool are currently fifth in the Barclays Premier League table, and are aiming for a win over the title leaders this weekend to push harder for a top four position. And coming off three victories in all competitions, the Reds are in a winning frame of mind and ready to show they’re a top team.
