Rodgers Praises 50 Goal Suarez

It was dubbed that battle between Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale- two players gunning for the English Premier League’s Player of the Season award.

And after Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur last night, Suarez may have inched ahead of Bale somewhat.

While Bale did provide glimpses of the incredible form that has catapulted him into Europe, and the world’s, top percentile- like a handful of powerful runs and a precise assist- he was overshadowed by Suarez.

The Liverpool forward scored the game’s opening goal with a superb poachers finish, when he capped off his intelligent run into the Spurs box by deftly side-footing from a narrow angle into the near corner.

He was a handful throughout, and also won the penalty that allowed Steven Gerrard to convert Liverpool’s winner from the spot.

After the match, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers once again sang the praises of Suarez, who has now scored 50 goals in all competitions for the Reds since his move from Ajax Amsterdam, including an EPL topping 22 so far this season.

"Football is worldwide now so everyone has seen how good he [Suarez] is," Rodgers said.

"But he is very happy among his mates here and you have seen today it doesn't matter where he plays - he was in the number 10 role and then he went in from the side he still created havoc.

“He knows the trust I put in him and that gives him the platform to go and perform."
