Hughton could not question Suarez's quality but felt his side should have handled him better.
"It has been a tough time for us with him in particular," he said.
"He is a world-class player and if you afford him that much space and time then he is one person that has the ability to do what he did today.
"I am more disappointed in the fact we afforded him too much space and time and gave him the opportunities he gratefully took.
"There aren't many players who can score that first goal but the second goal was the one which hurt us as it was a soft goal.
"My over-riding feeling is we could have done more to stop him having the day he has."
