Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has heaped praise on striker Luis Suarez follow his hat-trick against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
The Uruguay striker is no stranger to a treble, as this was his fourth in a Reds shirt, but it was his first at Anfield and comes after a summer where he was surrounded by speculation after claiming that he wanted to leave.
Suarez ended up staying at the club, as Liverpool reject a GBP 40 000 001 bid from Arsenal, and Rodgers is glad to see that their decision paid off.
"It was a difficult summer for him but it was for everyone and we managed as a club and he has managed himself well and he has come out the other side performing as he always done," said the manager.
"I knew once I had got the commitment from him in the summer he has been great.
"He is a tireless worker and I knew if he stayed it was going to be the case of working in training as he's always done.
"I thought the front two were brilliant. Suarez's first goal was exceptional, we really exploited the space in front of their centre-halves and he showed wonderful invention and creativity to nutmeg (Jonas) Olsson before taking his shot early.
"The second was a good team goal, I thought we moved it well, the cross came in early and he's guided the header in fantastically well.
"His third goal is from a great ball from Steven (Gerrard) and he could've had more after hitting the crossbar.
"It was his first hat-trick here at Anfield, I think you have seen his commitment to the team and what we are trying to do.
"It was a wonderful performance. Magic."
