Allardyce fears no amount of planning will be able to shackle Suarez.
"However hard we plan and however much we do, a man of his talent - if he's in that mood - is sometimes an unstoppable player.
"However well we might master him, like we did last season, there still might be a bit of genius and brilliance that we just can't stop.
"He is a unique centre forward in this country in terms of the places he pops up in. If the central defenders think they're going to mark Luis Suarez all game they won't, because it will be the full backs sometimes or your centre midfield players.
"If you can control him you've got a 50 per cent better chance of getting a result."
