Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard says Luis Suarez deserves to be named Player of the Year.

The Uruguayan has been in supreme goalscoring form throughout the campaign, extending his tally to 23 in all competitions with his strike at home to Swansea on Sunday.

"For me he's been player of the year, across this league and a lot more leagues," the 32-year-old told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"There are probably only one or two people who you could say have been better than him this season."
