3 Things We Learned From Chelsea’s Win Over Liverpool

2. Suarez can’t do it alone

Suarez to stay with Liverpool

Suarez may be in the form of his life for the Reds, but even he cannot do it all alone. Liverpool need to strengthen in the January window and bring in some quality in the middle of the park to support Suarez and Coutinho. While Daniel Sturridge’s return will undoubtedly provide support in the final third, the lack of quality in midfield is quite apparent in Steven Gerrard’s absence.

There is a lack of service into the front three and with Suarez dropping off deep to get the ball, it removed the threat of him making darting runs behind the defense. This made the job easier for the Chelsea defense with David Luiz tracking Suarez most of the time. If a quality midfielder is brought in who can create chances from deeper positions, Suarez will benefit from the better service and we may see a sustained push from Liverpool for the fourth and final Champions League spot.
