Luis Suarez is playing like a man possessed for Liverpool this season.
Suarez was brought in by manager Kenny Dalglish for a club-record fee of £22.8 million, a few hours before it was broken again to sign Andy Carroll. Suarez's tenure at Liverpool has been a mixture of good and bad.
He was found guilty of racial abuse towards Frenchman Patrice Evra of Manchester United, and was given an eight game suspension for the 2011-12 season. He was suspended for 10 games when he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in April 2013.
In the quarter-final of the FIFA World Cup 2010 against Ghana, he blocked Dominic Adiyiah's goalbound header with his hands to save what would have been the game winner and was sent off.
Asamoah Gyan hit the crossbar with the ensuing penalty kick and Suárez, who had stopped to watch, celebrated the miss before heading down the tunnel. Uruguay won the shootout 4–2 and advanced to the semi-finals. Critics called these incidents a violation to sportsmanship.
However, it has not all been bad. He has been a goal machine for Liverpool, and is also the top scorer for his nation, Uruguay. He has been Liverpool's go-to man whenever they need a goal, or a moment of inspiration.
This season has been a season of brilliance for the Uruguayan. He displayed his class in a dominant display against Norwich City at home, when he scored four of Liverpool's five goals, one being a screamer of a half-volley from 40 yards out.
Suarez has continued his scoring form, and netted two against a shaky Spurs side at White Hart Lane to help Liverpool to a 5-0 away win on Sunday.
His impressive form has garnered interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid, who are believed to be lining up a bid for him which will include Karim Benzema (Mirror).
Suarez looks to be the favourite to win the Golden Boot this season, and will be a major part of Liverpool's hopes to qualify for the Champions League.
