Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen admits he's a big fan of Luis Suarez.

Suarez hit a hat-trick in victory over Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

He told "There is not much more you can say about him. He is world class and his hat-trick speaks for itself.

"His relationship not only with the players he plays with, but also the fans, doesn't really happen that often. He really is a hero and an idol for everyone. The way he is performing for this club, he deserves to be.

"With Luis, you know he is going to conjure something up at any given moment in a game. To have that in your team is enormous. He's always hungry for the ball and to get more goals - you can't really ask for much more."
