Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Luis Suarez is relishing the responsibility of leading the line - and the striker has committed himself to a long-term stay at Anfield.

While not an out-and-out centre-forward, the Uruguay international has played in the centre of a front three all season. He has delivered eight goals in 11 Barclays Premier League matches - scoring 11 overall - making him joint top scorer with Manchester United's Robin van Persie.

Rodgers considers the 25-year-old, his only fit senior striker, to be thriving in the system he has installed since taking over in the summer. "I've seen some elements and one to talk about is maybe the system change," he said.
