Joe Allen has labelled his Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez ‘unstoppable’ after the striker netted twice in the 3-0 win over QPR on Sunday.
The victory at Loftus Road saw Brendan Rodgers’ team climb up to ninth on the English Premier League table going into the New Year, with Suarez grabbing a double inside the opening 15 minutes.
With the 25-year-old forward having already surpassed last season’s tally of 11 league goals at the half-way mark this term, Allen believes it is performances like the one against struggling QPR which make him such a difficult player to play against.
“We were all desperate to bounce back after what was a bitterly disappointing result at Stoke,” Allen told the Liverpool Echo, referring to a 3-1 loss at the Britannia Stadium.
“We wanted to put things right and we did that with the way we played in the first half. As a team we were excellent and that’s the way we want to play in every match. When you’ve got someone like Luis Suarez you’re always going to cause teams problems. When Luis plays like that he’s unstoppable.
“For his first goal, when he picked up the ball I’m sure QPR didn’t think there was much danger. But he created something out of nothing and then produced a great finish. That’s why he’s a world-class striker. He’s scoring a lot of goals for us this season and long may that continue.”
