Managers unite in praise of Suarez

Maxi Rodriguez may have taken the headlines with a hat-trick, but managers Kenny Dalglish and Mark Hughes singled out Luis Suarez for praise after another virtuoso performance from the Uruguayan inspired Liverpool to a crushing 5-2 victory at Fulham.

• Fulham 2-5 Liverpool
• Gerrard: I'll be back for pre-season
• Blog: 666 and not out for Jamie
• Fulham Blog: Slaughterhouse five

Suarez was the driving force behind Monday night's win, which propelled the Reds up to fifth place in the Premier League and the £22.8 million fee Liverpool paid Ajax for the striker is looking more of a bargain by the week. Indeed Liverpool boss Dalglish did not hold back with the plaudits.

''He was fantastic,'' he said. ''He was running as hard at the end as he was at the very beginning and he caused them all sorts of problems. I don't think in our wildest dreams he could've settled in as quickly as he has done and taken to English football the way that he has done. He's graced the pitch every time he's played on it.''

Opposite number Mark Hughes admitted his players never got to grips with their tormentor, adding: ''It was a new experience for them and they'll learn from it because he's an accomplished player. When good players have time and space they can hurt you, which he certainly did.

''We maybe made them look a bit better than possibly they are. But they can certainly improve and they've got a talented guy (Suarez) at the top of their team that's going to work and harry and make positive movements in that final third and is going to create goals and chances for himself and his team. He was outstanding.''

Steven Gerrard also lavished praise on Suarez and has tipped him to do for Liverpool what Carlos Tevez has done for Manchester City.

"He is a midfielder's dream," Gerrard told Sky Sports. "As soon as you look up he makes great movements and he gives you options all the time. But what is impressing me even more is when he hasn't got the ball, his tenacity and desire to win it back.

"It is natural you will compare him to Tevez because of his build, his shape, the way he plays but for me and what I've seen so far, I'm slightly biased because he is in my team, I think he can go on to be better.

"Suarez's movement, his touch, his vision, the way he took his goal is sensational. He is a joy to play with."

Liverpool have now scored 13 goals in their last four matches and are in pole position for Europa League qualification.
