The Uruguayan scored an equaliser in the Reds' 1-1 draw with Newcastle United when he controlled a long pass on his shoulder before rounding Tim Krul and the brilliance of the goal was not lost on former Manchester United midfielder Beckham.
"It was exceptional, to score a goal like that. The way he brought the ball down, everything about it was amazing. It was amazing to watch it," he told reporters.
"He's a great player, he's capable of doing those things week in and week out."
