Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has paid tribute to Luis Suarez after the striker's quick-start to the current campaign.
The Uruguayan international helped fire his country to the Copa America title this summer, and their were far the forward would return to Anfield fatigued after a summer of football.
However, the former Ajax hitman has bagged three-in-three in all competition so far this term for the Reds, and Dalglish is delighted with the efforts of the January signing.
"He was on a high when he came back from the Copa America. He was voted player of the tournament and they won it, so he is going to be on a high and flying," Dalglish told the official Liverpool website.
"Luis is always going to score goals, but three in three is certainly a reasonable return from him."
Suarez opened his account on the first day of the Barclays Premier League season, scoring from close-range after earlier missing a penalty in the 1-1 draw against Sunderland.
After coming off the bench at the Emirates, the striker rolled home from 10 yards out to secure a 2-0 victory at Arsenal, and was again on the scoresheet when opening the scoring against Exeter City in the Carling Cup third round on Wednesday night.
Andy Carroll, the other high-profile January signing on Merseyside, was also on the scoresheet against the Grecians, and the former Newcastle forwards partnership with Suarez is causing reasons for optimism at Anfield.
"We're delighted with the pair of them and I'm sure we'll be happy with their contributions - not just this season, but throughout their careers at Liverpool Football Club."
