Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard says Luis Suarez is up there with the best in the world. Gerrard rates Suarez as already the best player in the Premier League - and says he is now catching the very best in the world.

He said: "I've run out of words to describe him. We're blessed in this country to have some really top forwards, top, top attacking players.

"But for me, without being biased, he's the best. I've said it many times, I look at Messi and Ronaldo and, yeah, they're world class players.

"But outside of that, you have ­Ibrahimovic and Luis Suarez, who are pushing those two really close."
