Andre Villas-Boas has admitted Tottenham Hotspur will find it “very difficult” to stop Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.

The Uruguay international has scored 15 goals in nine Premier League appearances following his return from a 10-game ban in late September.

He’s a key player for them and very difficult to stop

Suarez scored in a 2-2 draw with Spurs at Anfield in April this year, and Villas-Boas earmarked the 26-year-old as Liverpool’s danger man ahead of their clash on Sunday.

“He’s a player going through a wonderful individual moment,” Villas-Boas said.

“He’s full of the confidence. We have to be aware of his strengths. He’s a player that individually can solve the game.

“So we have to be aware not only of the people that feed him but the actual individual moments of brilliance that we saw this season, that have been so decisive for Liverpool.

“He’s a key player for them and very difficult to stop.”

Villas-Boas also praised Tottenham’s response following a demoralising 6-0 loss at Manchester City earlier this month.

“We have had a good recovery and a good response from the team from that setback,” Villas-Boas said.

“If we manage to get a win against Liverpool we’re completely back on track with the top teams.

“It’s a big, big game for us – we won’t be that far off, even if we don’t win that game.”
