Luis Suarez: Liverpool have already forgotten Chelsea defeat

Striker Luis Suárez insists that Liverpool have already put their defeat by Chelsea behind them

Luis Suarez insisted that Liverpool have already forgotten about their 2-0 defeat by Chelsea as they look to get their Premier League title bid back on track.

The Blues dented the Merseyside club’s title hopes after goals from Demba Ba and Willian sent Liverpool crashing to their first defeat since December.

We have forgotten about the game and now we just focus on the next matches

But Suarez, who won the PFA player of the year award at a glitzy ceremony in London on Sunday night, says that he and his team-mates have already put the disappointing loss behind them.

“We have forgotten about the game and now we just focus on the next matches,” said Suarez. Asked if Liverpool could still win the title, the striker replied: “Of course.”

Liverpool are currently two points clear at the top of the table but Manchester City can move above the Reds on goal difference if they win their game in hand.

Speaking after Sunday’s defeat, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers criticised Chelsea’s tactical approach to the game.

“They obviously sat very deep,” said Rodgers. “I think there were two buses parked today, never mind one.

“It was like a back six with three midfield players in front of that. That’s 10, with the goalkeeper, for 90 minutes consistently behind the ball.”
