Carragher keeps Suarez over Rooney

Liverpool vice-captain Jamie Carragher wouldn't swap Luis Suarez for any other striker in the Barclays Premier League.

The Uruguayan international has been earning rave reviews at Anfield this term, with an all-action style of play making the forward a fans' favourite despite fewer goals than other top marksmen in the division.

Wayne Rooney and Sergio Aguero lead the scoring charts domestically in England, but Carragher wouldn't be interested in bringing either to Merseyside if it meant letting the 24-year-old go in the opposite direction.

“I know there are great players in the league. Aguero has started great, Rooney has started great, all these different players, but I can honestly say, without bias, I wouldn’t swap him for anyone," Carragher told talkSPORT.

“I’m not saying these players aren’t as good as him but, for me, I wouldn’t swap him for anyone. I think he’s fantastic.”

Suarez has already written off the Reds' title chances this season, but is eager to win silerware in one of the domestic cup competitions.


Carragher wasn't so quick to dismiss his side's chances, although the versatile defender is well aware that it will be a tall order against traditional rivals Manchester United and big-spending Manchester City.

"To be honest, at the start of the season you'll have the idea of winning the league, but in the last couple of seasons we finished sixth and seventh, so for us to get in the top four - you'll be pleased with that," he continued.

"But, at Christmas if we're top or just three points behind United or City, we're going to say we want to win the league.

"I always change my opinion of what I want us to do considering where we are in the league, and at this moment people are saying we're in a race with maybe Spurs and Arsenal because we're a little bit off City and United, but over the next month if we catch them up...your opinion changes."
