Gerrard: Suarez thrives on criticism

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has warned Premier League rivals if they try to wind up Luis Suarez they should be prepared for a backlash from the Uruguayan.

The striker was at the centre of most things in Sunday's 2-2 draw in the 219th Merseyside derby, scoring once, seeing a cross-shot deflected in and having an added-time winner wrongly ruled out. Suarez also produced a humorous response to Everton manager David Moyes by diving at the Scot's feet after his assertion the forward goes to ground too easily.

"Luis Suarez was fantastic for us again," said Gerrard. "He doesn't need David Moyes to fire him up. But if people want to try to get in Luis' head and wind him up then it's the wrong thing to do. You saw from yesterday's evidence that it seems to inspire him rather than go against him."
