John Barnes believes that Liverpool are relying too much on Luis Suarez and if he gets injured, we will be in trouble.

Barnes was speaking exclusively to Goal.com and he said, “Luis Suarez is fantastic but I wish it was not all about Gerrard and Suarez. Liverpol need a better squad so there is not too much focus on them because if Suarez suddenly gets injured and can’t play you have got a problem and Liverpool can’t win.

“It can’t just be about the one or two players no matter how good they are. You do not win things when you depend on one or two players.

“You don’t want to be in a position where you have to rely on one or two people alone. Yes Suarez and Gerrard are both excellent players but they have to make sure that players are up there with them as well.”

Barnes continued: “Steven Gerrard has been the best player in England for the last five years and he really he is a fantastic captain and Fernando Torres was superb as well for Liverpool for a couple of years.

“Suarez is a great player but the great thing about football is that there is always someone else coming along who is going to become a great player. Things quickly move on in football.”
