Kenny Dalglish insists that Luis Suarez will continue to "terrorise" defences, whatever gamesmanship sides use to deter him.
"If they feel they can resort to verbals to stop him, fine, all we ask for is consistency, that he is judged the way everybody else is," said Dalglish, before his side's home game with QPR today. "He hasn't scored since 1 October but it is not a problem. What is important is the contribution he makes to the team."
Dalglish said his side have hit the post 14 times this season and defended Andy Carroll, who has not scored since October. "It's easy to say someone hasn't scored for three months, but you can throw up any stats – he has not started every game."
