Liverpoool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Luis Suarez is at the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, after his incredible performance last night against Norwich City.
The Uruguayan put on an unbelievable display at home to Norwich City, scoring four goals in the Reds' 5-1 victory.
The 26-year-old never disappointed with the quality of the strikes - all the goals could be contenders for Goal of the Month - as he made it 11 goals in four matches against the Canaries.
"The headlines are simple enough," he commented. "I haven't seen many individual performances like that before. It was a joy to watch, one of the best strikers in the world."
The striker has now made it 61 goals in 86 games for Liverpool since joining in 2011, and this season he has already scored 13 times in nine games for the Reds.
Rodgers continued, stating these are the sort of games Messi and Ronaldo thrive on.
"Among world-class operators like Messi and Ronaldo, it's all about numbers," he added. "They don't deal in ones or twos, it's all fours and fives, and, of course, Luis has shown he can do that."
All three of these players have been shortlisted for the Ballon d'Or, with the Real Madrid star as the front-runner. As this season 28-year-old has played 14 times and scored 17 goals, while Messi, who is currently injured, has scored eight goals in his last ten starts.
Rodgers concluded to say that Suarez is the happiest he's been for a while, following another difficult year for the Uruguay international.
"He is the happiest he has been in all his time here, and that is adding a maturity to his play," Rodgers continued."I am convinced his best years are going to be spent here. He is only 26 and is going to keep on improving."
Liverpool, meanwhile, have only won two of their last five games, and have important games in December against Tottenham, Manchester City and Chelsea, to which Suarez will need to be on form with Daniel Sturridge missing through injury.
