Liverpool striker Suarez: Emotion of Man City win crucial

Luis Suarez admits last week's win over Manchester City was crucial to Liverpool's title hopes.

Liverpool's dramatic victory over Manchester City at Anfield last Sunday prompted Steven Gerrard's stirring speech in the centre circle to the rest of the players.

Suarez said: "For the team confidence it was very nice and we know that the victory against City was the most important of the season.

"We are top and they are trying to win the Premier League as well and I think the atmosphere from Anfield was unbelievable, fantastic, and amazing for us.

"The Liverpool fans were player 12 for us and they helped us a lot when Manchester City drew 2-2, they tried to help and this is good for confidence on the pitch. You want to try the best.

"But I think this season Liverpool have played with 20 players and all the players who have come onto the pitch have helped the team and we have had a lot of injuries but this hasn't been other problem because other players have stepped-up and played very well and this has been good for the confidence of the team."
