Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher hailed Luis Suarez after their draw at Chelsea.

Carragher has labelled him as the best player in the Premier League, after he took his tally to the campaign up to 11 after his hot streak continued at Chelsea.

"People say we are dependent on Suarez," said Carragher. "But listen. Messi at Barcelona, Ronaldo at Real Madrid. Every team will have a standout player, and Luis is one of them, not just in the Premier League but in the world.

"I’ve felt for 12 months he’s the best player in the league because he’s not playing alongside the kind of players the Chelsea players can play alongside. He’s one of the best players in world football and we are delighted to have him.

"He does things in a game that we see him doing in training on a daily basis. There’s always that question, I think being asked unfairly, of whether he scores enough goals, but isn’t he the top scorer in the league at the moment? And that’s in a team that hasn’t won that many league games."
