Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers isn't worried about Luis Suarez's fitness.

Rodgers was questioned as to whether he felt the Premier League's leading goalscorer, Luis Suarez, had shown signs of fatigue during the Reds' 0-0 draw against West Ham on Sunday.

"I don't think so," was his response. "What Luis showed last weekend was that he was human. The level of his consistency this year has been incredible.

"I thought last weekend West Ham defended very well and we couldn't find the solutions to break them down.

"Luis might not have been at his very best but he certainly gave a seven out of 10 performance because of his work-rate and his intensity.

"From time to time he'll have games like that, but that just shows you the level that he's reached. He's been brilliant and he's just got that type of mindset where he wants to play every game."
