Liverpool’s Suárez: Winning the FA Cup would cap a great season
Luis Suárez believes beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley would render Liverpool's season a success
Luis Suárez believes completing a cup double with victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday would cap a “great season” for Liverpool.
The 24-year-old was part of the Reds side that beat Cardiff City in the Carling Cup final in February, and the Uruguayan helped Liverpool book their place in a second showpiece with the equaliser against Everton before Andy Carroll’s late winner in the semi-final.
“From a trophy point of view it would have been a great season, to have won two out of the three that you competed for – that would be superb, but for now we’ve got a match to play and I prefer to leave those thoughts until after Saturday’s game,” said Suárez.
Suárez scored a stunning hat-trick in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Norwich City in his last appearance and the former Ajax forward revealed the squad was buoyed by the result at Carrow Road despite losing 1-0 to Fulham at Anfield on Tuesday night.
“I think it’s a good thing that the whole group is feeling confident,” he added.
“We’re coming off the back of the semi-final win over Everton and a great win at Norwich. We slipped up against Fulham but our confidence is still quite high as we face Chelsea.
“They have been in good form lately too, and they of course knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League, and we have to be aware of that, however we’ve managed to beat them twice at their place this season.
“Of course our manager will be studying them closely and then it’s down to us to carry out his plans out there during the game.”
