London - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was glowing in his praise of Luis Suarez after the striker’s stand-out performance against Newcastle.
The Uruguay international was at his brilliant best in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Anfield, producing a superb equaliser that has drawn praise even from those more accustomed to criticising the forward.
Suarez has scored seven league goals this season - in his last nine matches - which is more than half the team’s tally for the campaign.
“I thought he was unbelievable. It was a brilliant goal for Luis and a terrific performance and it bodes well for us going forward,” said Rodgers.
“His cleverness and movement is world class. But it’s important that we’ve got men running in off that.”
Rodgers hopes to add squad reinforcements when the transfer window opens in January.
“It doesn’t worry me,” Rodgers added. “He (Suarez) gets picked to score goals, but of course I would want them to be more spread out.
“Everyone knows that this is the key feature for us. We need to also get goals from other areas, but I can’t complain when we play to that level.
“Once we get that type of player in, that is really going to finish off a lot of great work that we have been doing.”
