Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says Luis Suarez has played a huge role in their upsurge.

Carragher passionately believes that Uruguay striker Suarez has been one of the most important factors in the recent impressive revival.

"Of course, the manager is always the main man and takes most plaudits, but for me Luis Suarez has been outstanding," he said.

"We all think after watching him for five or six games that he is a player - we can all see that, and he has made a big difference to us. Maybe not as much as the manager, but a big one."
