Luis Suarez's latest goalscoring exploits have seen him compared to Lionel Messi, but the Liverpool striker has attempted to brush off claims he is like the Barcelona star.

Suarez netted all four goals on Friday as Uruguay trounced Chile in a qualifier for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil - a performance hailed as 'extraordinary' by national boss Oscar Tabarez.

The Uruguayan press have gone equally as crazy for the Anfield hitman, suggesting he is on a par with Messi - generally regarded as the finest player in the world.

Suarez, though, has taken these flattering suggestions in his stride, and his attributed his individual success to the endeavours of the Uruguay team as a whole.

"Comparisons with Messi embarrass me," the Liverpool No.7 told El Pais.

"It also makes me smile, but I feel the comparisons are just the reaction from the Uruguay fans as everything seems to be going well at the moment.

"I am happy, but we have to look at the work of the whole team as it is not just about one player."

Following his haul against Chile, Suarez now has 14 goals for club and country since the start of the season.

However, the 24-year-old will have his work cut out on Sunday as Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.
