Gerrard: Suarez Can Catch Messi and Ronaldo

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard believes it is only a matter of time before his on-fire team-mate Luis Suarez can rival Messi and Ronaldo for the Ballon d’Or.

“You have seen a world-class performance, probably one of the best individual performances I've seen at Anfield - and I've been playing here a long time," Gerrard told the club's official website following the win against Norwich.

“Having worked with him every single day, it's probably less of a surprise to me as it is to the supporters. I've been pushing his corner for a long time that he is up there with the best in the world.”

“I think he's getting so close to the main two, Ronaldo and Messi. If he keeps going, I think he can catch them.”

"His fourth goal was average and it was a 30-yard free-kick, so I think that sums his performance up."

Luis Suarez scored four goals including his third hat-trick against The Canaries last night and is currently the Premier League’s leading goal scorer with 13 goals in just nine matches.

The result against Norwich was the perfect response to Liverpool’s surprise loss to Hull City on Sunday, and Gerrard hopes Liverpool can replicate the display in games to come.

"It was all about the reaction tonight and the three points. We're really pleased but we've got to match that again against West Ham or tonight is pointless. We have been really good at home, for the majority of games we have been superb.”

"There was only Southampton where we haven't turned up. If we keep performing to that level, we can make Anfield a fortress - if you want to be successful in this league, you've got to make your home ground a fortress."

After West Ham, The Reds have to travel to Tottenham and welcome Cardiff at Anfield before Christmas. On Boxing Day they travel to Man City and they will finish the year with another difficult away fixture to Chelsea.
