Rodgers Hails Super Suarez

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers struggled to find enough praise for his star striker’s performance in their 5-1 victory over Norwich.

"Sheer brilliance”, “a remarkable individual performance” and “a top world-class player” were only a few hails which Suarez’ manager found after the match.

"I always like to talk about the team but I think you have to hold up Luis as one of the best strikers in the world. Incredible performance."

The Uruguay international scored four times – including a 20-minute first-half hat-trick – and also provided the assist for Liverpool’s fifth goal after Norwich had pulled one back.

Rodgers indicated that he thinks Liverpool’s style of play suits his star striker best and that Suarez should stay at Anfield for a long time.

"I think he is the happiest he has been here. He flies all around the world but I think this club suits him perfectly and I still think his best years are going to be here.

The Norwich defence seems to be Suarez’ most loved hunting ground. He has now scored 11 goals – including three hat-tricks – at an average of a goal every 33 minutes in his last four matches against The Canaries.

Overall Suarez has now scored 51 league goals in 84 appearances and is also the Premier League's leading scorer with 13 goals in just nine games.

Norwich boss Chris Hughton could not question Suarez's quality but felt his side gave him too much space and allowed the Liverpool striker to come up with this brilliant performance.

"He is a world-class player and if you afford him that much space and time then he is one person that has the ability to do what he did today.”

Norwich next travel to West Brom whilst Liverpool host West Ham – another bottom half team to visit Suarez’ most loved hunting ground at Anfield.
