Gary McAllister admits Liverpool look toothless in attack without Daniel Sturridge.
The former Chelsea striker was absent for the 2-0 defeat to West Brom on Monday night, after injuring himself in the Reds’ Premier League draw with Manchester City earlier this month.
Suarez had to shoulder much of the attacking workload against the Baggies and McAllister, who won the UEFA Cup with the Merseyside club in 2001, believes Brendan Rodgers must play two up front at all times.
“They missed Daniel Sturridge massively [against West Brom],” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “Luis Suarez is fantastic player but he does do a lot of stuff outside the box.
“When he’s outside the box, linking up with people, there’s nobody in the box. Even when Jonjo Shelvey and Steven Gerrard played off the front, it’s just another midfielder trying to play as a striker.
"They need forwards, people in there who have got an eye for goal.”
