Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has no doubts Luis Suarez is the best in the world.

Suarez has scored 19 Premier League goals in 12 games to fire Liverpool to the top of the Premier League.

Gerrard said: "On current form he's the best player in the world.

"Lionel Messi's out injured and Cristiano Ronaldo's had a bit of an injury of late.

"He (Suarez) is certainly the best striker out there. He's proving that with his minutes-to-goals ratio."
