Carroll and Suarez finally gelling

Next Story

Charlie Adam has insisted that Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez are finally starting to click into an unstoppable strikeforce on the field for Liverpool, as the strikers aim to get the Reds back into the top four and challenging for trophies.

Suarez and Carroll both made the move to Liverpool in January for over £50 million combined, and while Suaez has had an immediate impact for the Reds, Carroll is still adjusting and realising his full potential.

But Adam believes that now, with the pair scoring three goals between them over the last two matches, Carroll and Suarez are learning to play to each other’s best attributes.

"It's easy to see the two of them are top players and they are working well," Adam told the official Liverpool website.

"Luis got the penalty and laid on a great ball for Andy's goal. Their movement is terrific and they caused a lot of problems for West Brom's defence. The two of them should be happy with the performance they put it."

While Adam had special praise for Carroll and Suarez, the summer signing insisted that the strength of the Liverpool side is shown in their high quality bench, which numerous big name players fighting for a spot in the starting line-up.

"When you are at this club there are so many good players,” he explained. “On Saturday, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher never played, people like Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy were on the bench.

"It's up to the manager who he picks but when you come to a team like Liverpool it's a squad game with 25 international players so it's going to be difficult to get in the team. Everybody has got to take their chance when it comes. We know that if we slip our standards then we'll get dropped.

"If you're at a big club you need different options and we've got that. If we can use that to our advantage over the course of the season then we'll be happy. I thought we played well at West Brom and created a lot of chances again. We're passing the ball well but there are other aspects to our game we know we're going to have to work on.

"We're getting better every game but it takes time when you get so many new players together."
