Suarez confident of being Liverpool success

New Liverpool signing Luis Suarez is relaxed by the prospect of his move to English football. The Uruguay international joined the Reds on the back of a prolific goalscoring record for Ajax, with 111 goals in 159 matches.

His arrival on Merseyside, however, was overshadowed by Andy Carroll's club record £35million transfer from Newcastle. Not that the 24-year-old South American

is bothered by his fellow forward stealing all the limelight. "I was aware it would be quite tough to settle in and adapt with a quick rapid style of football but having seen what I saw against Stoke let's hope every game turns out like that," he said. "It is a weight off your shoulders scoring your first goal.

"You know everyone is keeping an eye on what you do so it does relax you and helps from the word go. But in terms of making the change from Dutch football it is a case of doing what you have always done, concentrating on your own strengths rather than worrying about defenders. You just have to get on with it and play to your strengths."
