West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel is wary of facing Liverpool ace Luis Suarez today.

The Baggies need a result after their midweek derby defeat to Aston Villa.

“Suarez is in fantastic form, there aren’t many players like him,” said Mel.

“In my opinion he is in the top one or two forwards in the world at the moment.

“But just as important as Suarez is Steven Gerrard, because it’s Gerrard who provides the passes for Suarez in the first place.”
