Luis Suarez sees Liverpool finally ending their Premier League title curse
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez admits there is “enormous” expectation that his side will be able to end their title curse this season. In an interview to a French radio station, Suarez suggested Liverpool are in good position to pick up their first Premier League title.
Liverpool haven’t been crowned as the English champions since they picked up the last of their 18 titles in 1990. The five-time European champions have failed to win the league title for 21 seasons. However, they are in prime position to change that statistic.
Arsenal gave Liverpool their second defeat of the season at the Emirates on Sunday. League leaders Arsenal are hot-favorites to win the Premier League, but Liverpool and Chelsea are big threats to their success.
Suarez told RMC that Liverpool’s squad was capable of bringing the coveted Premier League trophy to Anfield.
“It's more than 20 years since the club won the title. The expectation is enormous. This season, we've started well, with desire and hope,” Suarez said. “We don't have European competition, which is going to allow us to focus 100% on the league.
“This season in the Premier League, there is very little between the teams. Anything can happen against anyone. It's up to us to take advantage of that situation.”
Liverpool have kicked off their Premier League activities in brilliant fashion. The Reds largely owe their success to the deadly partnership Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have formed in the attack. The deadly duo have already accounted for 14 goals between them.
Suarez’s stunning form is attracting interest from Real Madrid once again. Reports suggest Real Madrid will come to Liverpool with an offer for the Uruguayan hit-man during the winter transfer window. Suarez suggests that for now such reports were based on mere speculation.
“There are always rumors. Sometimes too many,” Suarez added. “If I had to play for all the clubs the press sent me to, I would become completely mad. I stay out of all of that.”
With the help of his impressive form Suarez has been able to redeem himself in the eyes of the public. During his stay in the Premier League the 26-year-old Uruguay international has been embroiled in a biting incident with Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, diving incidents and of course the infamous case of racial abuse against Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
“That belongs to the past,” Suarez said on racial abuse case. “That controversy hurt me, because I was obliged to justify myself without any proof against me. I was punished without any proof against me. Today, I only think about the present.”
