Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is pleased striker Luis Suarez has not scored more hat-tricks - because he thinks it keeps him hungry for more.

The Uruguay international scored two for the second successive match as Sunderland were swept aside 3-0 on Wednesday night. Suarez has just two Reds trebles to his name, both against Norwich, but he has found net twice in a game three times on his way to 15 Premier League goals already this season.

"It's nice in a strange way that he hasn't had more hat-trick because he will want more goals," said Gerrard. "Sometimes when forwards get hat-tricks they take their foot off the gas. I hope he's upset and went home angry that he only got two."
