Suarez: Carroll keeps things simple

Luis Suarez has praised the recent contribution of Liverpool strike partner Andy Carroll, who is starting to come into his own at Anfield following winning goals against Blackburn and Everton.

The Uruguayan is enjoying playing with the powerful English target man, and says that his presence makes life easier for smaller forwards like him.

"I think it's great for us to have a player of his ability and style," Suarez told

"His height and his ability in the air and to bring the ball down makes it easy for us smaller forwards in the side to link up with him.

"You only have to be running alongside him and you find the ball at your feet."

The pair are starting to show encouraging signs of forging a dangerous partnership in attack, now that the two players have been handed a run of consecutive games with each other.

Both Suarez and Carroll were on the scoresheet for Kenny Dalglish's side in last weekend's FA Cup semi-final success over Liverpool's Merseyside rivals, sealing another return to Wembley in May.

The players now want to transfer their recent upturn in form into the Premier League, and finish the 2011-12 campaign on a high.

"I think he's showing that his technique on the ground has really come on," Suarez continued. "I think in the games where he has featured recently we are now seeing the Andy that we've all been wanting to see and he's really contributing, which is important."

Liverpool welcome West Brom to Anfield on Sunday - a match that will see the return of former manager Roy Hodgson - and will be looking for three points to help close the gap on Everton in 7th place.
