Lionel Messi overtaken by Liverpool starlet in La Liga assists

Liverpool teenager Suso has been afforded the opportunity to further his education away from the club this season with a loan spell at Almeria, and his performances will provide Reds fans with further excitement for the future.

In his 11 La Liga appearances for Almeria so far this season Suso has contributed five assists, the last of which came at the weekend, and this particular success in the defeat of Valladolid saw the 19-year-old surpass the tally of Lionel Messi.

Five assists places Suso as the joint-fourth highest goal provider in La Liga, level with Cani of Villarreal, and one ahead of Messi, who has laid on four goals for Barcelona so far this term.

Suso is certainly making the most of his temporary spell away from Liverpool, with only Cesc Fabregas, Koke and Neymar having contributed more assists in the Spanish top-flight during the 2013-14 campaign.

The youngster made his first team debut for Liverpool last season, earning 20 appearances in all competitions, but an embarrassment of riches in midfield positions prompted Brendan Rodgers to send Suso away on loan.

Suso joined Liverpool's academy in 2010, seen as something as a coup for the Reds, and is regarded very highly indeed at the club.
