Luis Suarez has openly admitted that Liverpool's title challenge has taken he and his teammates by surprise.

The Reds could take a huge step to winning their first league title in 24-years if they beat Chelsea at home this Sunday. Brendan Rodgers side would need just a win and a draw from their remaining games if they get all three points against Jose Mourinho's men.

Liverpool can take confidence from their 11-match winning run, and the fact Mourinho has suggested he will field a weakened team due to their Champions League involvement, which should be further encouragement for Suarez and his teammates.

Suarez says the fact that their competitors have stronger squads on paper, makes their position at the top of the table all the more surprising, according to the Guardian.

The Uruguayan, speaking to Perform, said: "[Winning the title] would be something that no one would believe.

"Because we have good players but if you look at the complete roster, we don't have [the players] to be up there.

"The truth is that we are surprised ourselves at how well we're playing."

The former Ajax forward has been in outstanding form for this season, scoring an impressive 30 goals in 30 games. His partnership with Daniel Sturridge has been one of the main reasons behind Liverpool's incredible run.

And Suarez says if Liverpool win the title it will be a shock to the country, considering what other teams have spent.

He said: "We have good players who are demonstrating why they are in Liverpool and it would be something amazing even to England because of the investment made by Chelsea, [Manchester] City and Arsenal.

"Even Tottenham have spent over €120m and we, with so little investment, are in that position. It would be incredible."
