Liverpool legend Aldo: Suarez outdid Tottenham's Bale

Liverpool legend John Aldridge felt Luis Suarez proved himself the best in the league in victory over Tottenham.

The Uruguayan came up against a man thought to be one of his main rivals for the Player of the Season accolades in Gareth Bale - and Aldridge believes the No.7 was the more impressive performer on Sunday.

He wrote in his column in the Liverpool Echo: "Gareth Bale showed his brilliance in patches," said the Kop legend. "He is such a great player to have in your side but in his duel with Luis Suarez there was only one winner.

"Suarez continued his stunning form, scoring the first and winning the penalty which enabled Steven Gerrard to win it from the spot.

"The manner in which we broke the deadlock was outstanding. There's a good understanding developing between Jose Enrique and Philippe Coutinho down the left.

"It was a lovely move and the finish was executed brilliantly by Suarez. He knew exactly what he wanted to do with it and that puts him three clear of Robin van Persie in the race for the Golden Boot."
