Suarez concedes the title is 'unreachable'

LIVERPOOL striker Luis Suarez believes Liverpool can win silverware this season but has ruled them out of the Premier League title race.

The Uruguayan striker believes the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea are "unreachable".

"We have no limit and want to stay in the top four. But winning the Premier League is now difficult," he said.

"The main reason why it is so difficult is because the two Manchesters and Chelsea are unreachable.

"But we can win the cups."

Suarez, who has scored five times from nine games this season, also revealed that he didn't understand the significance of the number seven jersey and the fact that it had been previously worn by Kevin Keegan and Reds great Kenny Dalglish.

"I didn't know the history of my No7 shirt at Liverpool. I picked it because it was one of the few numbers available," he added.

"Now that I know the story I am proud to wear the '7' and I try not to feel the burden of its heritage."

Suarez admits that Dalglish has taken him under his wing since his arrival at Anfield.

"Dalglish tries to talk to me in Spanish and tries to help me," Suarez said. "I appreciate that.

"I am liking the Premier League more than I could imagine."

EMMANUEL Adebayor is adamant he will not be affected by abusive chants by Arsenal fans.

"If I can survive the bullets in Angola then a few mindless insults will have little impact," he said.

The former Gunners forward was the subject of chants during Sunday's north London derby from sections of the travelling fans, who mocked the deadly gun attack on the Togo team bus in January 2010 in which Adebayor survived.

Both Tottenham and Arsenal have denounced the offensive chanting which also saw Arsene Wenger taunted during the game at White Hart Lane.

Adebayor added: "The songs that they sung about me were bad, but was I surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes.

"Obviously, it was all meant to hurt me, to upset me, to anger me.

"It is sad that parents let their children hear or sing such things. As a child, you are influenced by your parents' actions. You see them doing it and you think it is the correct way to behave. It's very sad how the memory of something so awful could be used in such an awful way."
