Joe Cole has no doubts about the quality of new Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Both players featured in yesterday's defeat at West Ham United.

"He was excellent in his first couple of outings." Cole told "He's a goal scorer and exactly the type of player the club needs to buy.

"It's a big jump from the Dutch league to the Premier League, but looking at what he's got in his ability and attributes, it shouldn't be a problem for him.

"He's going to be a good signing for the club. Hopefully Luis can give us the kind of form he showed for Ajax and at the World Cup."
