Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Suarez best striker I've played with

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has hailed Luis Suarez as being better than Manchester United's Wayne Rooney.

Gerrard has lined up alongside Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Fernando Torres - in the days when he was scoring for fun.

Yet when it comes to naming the one who tops the pile, Gerrard did not need a second's thought - current Kop hitman Suarez.

"He's got everything hasn't he? He can score fantastic goals or tap-ins and if he gets you in the box you're in trouble.

"He is a fighter, he doesn't like losing even in training, and he's a winner. Luis ticks every box for me.

"I think him and Van Persie are the two best players in the league on current form.

"Michu's surprised a few and is flying at the moment but I think they are the two hottest centre-forwards in the league by a long way.

"Van Persie has done it for years at Arsenal. He's a top player and I love watching him but Luis is the best centre-forward I've played with."
