A Closer Look At How Suarez Ripped Fulham Apart

Fulham are having a tough time this season. Martin Jol has failed to get the Cottagers firing and went into the game at Liverpool with an almighty amount of pressure heaped on his shoulders and most of the nation pointing him out as the next topflight manager receive the boot the last thing.

The Reds had 33 shots at goal during the game while the Londoners mustered just four – only one of which was on target- and there was one man who ran the show at Anfield – Luis Suarez.

The South American was is confident mood yesterday afternoon and tried his luck with 10 shots, scoring twice. One of his shots even came from the half way line, although it bounced just wide of the post.

Unusually for a corner taker, all four of Suarez’s crosses met their targeted destination, and two ended in assists. The way that he took his first goal was quite remarkable, as the ball was fizzed into his feet, he poked the ball past Maarten Stekelenburg with his first touch.

The second goal came after a determined Steven Gerrard prodded a ball through to the Uruguay international before he took a touch to push it wide and he smashed it in.

His partnership with Daniel Sturridge is really something special and is only the start of what could potentially be a historic relationship, but has he cost Jol his job?
