Luis Suarez like Henry and Bergkamp combined

Luis Suarez has been in quite breathtaking form of late, and the individual awards are likely to follow at the end of the season. But there can be no accolade greater than the one bestowed on the Liverpool striker by Martin Keown, who sees Suarez as a combination of Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.

The Uruguay international scored four times against Norwich on Wednesday to take his Premier League tally to 13 for the season, with this haul coming in only nine appearances. Suarez has now scored 36 times in his last 42 league outings.

It has not been just the frequency of Suarez's scoring that has been so impressive, but the quality of his goals too. Three of his quadruple at Anfield this week were breathtaking, with the first a contender for goal of the season.

This irresistible blend in his goalscoring ability has seen the Liverpool star compared to two Arsenal legends, both of whom are among the greatest players the Premier League has ever seen.

Keown, who played with both Henry and Bergkamp during his time at Arsenal, also believes Suarez is in a position to elevate himself above former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy in terms of natural ability.

Van Nistelrooy scored 150 goals for Manchester United during his time at Old Trafford, but Keown senses that the Liverpool No.7 could be even better than the Dutchman.

Keown told the Daily Mail: "I think Suarez is getting himself above Ruud van Nistelrooy, he’s not quite got the pace of somebody like Thierry Henry, who I played with [at Arsenal], but Suarez is almost a combination of Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.

"He is scoring such a great mix of goals."
