Suarez: Stopping Bale is key
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has identified Gareth Bale as the man to stop when his side take on Tottenham on Sunday.
Suarez and Bale have been so important to their respective teams - each scoring 15 in their last 15 games - that both the Reds and Spurs have been labelled 'one-man teams' at times this season.
The Uruguayan forward has done little to put an end to that talk by claiming stopping Bale is the key to beating Tottenham.
"Messi and Ronaldo may be playing in another dimension but Gareth has all it takes to play at the highest level," said Suarez, quoted in The Sun.
"He is one of the Premier League's players of the season and is in magnificent form. He is unquestionably the key for Spurs.
"We need to stop him to avoid problems in our penalty area. We're not obsessed with Gareth but he's the one to stop, not just because of his goals but because of all his assists for team-mates."
