Liverpool have called for better protection for forward Luis Suarez after what they see as a series of poor challenges from Norwich at the weekend, Liverpool
Suarez was the victim of a number of bruising challenges in the 1-1 draw and Liverpool are looking for more help for their forward. Reports suggest that the Reds believe Suarez is being punished by referees amid the diving allegations that have been banded about in the past few weeks.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said that the ‘boy Suarez dived all over the place’ and Liverpool have leapt to the defence of their tricky Uruguayan, who they believe is being physically bullied because of his world-class attacking nature.
Suarez should be rested for the Carling Cup fixture away at Stoke City, but will be back in first team contention when they travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom and former manager Roy Hodgson.
