Liverpool striker Luis Suarez scored four goals in one of the all time great Premier League performances to sink Norwich
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers suggests Luis Suarez should be considered alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the world's best player after watching him destroy Norwich.
Having watched Suarez notch one of the all-time great Premier League hat-tricks, followed by a wonderful fourth, Rodgers said:
“He deserves mention with Messi and Ronaldo,” Rodgers said. “For a few years they have been out on their own, but Luis is still only 26 and still making improvements to his game.
“I’ve not seen many performances like that. It was sheer brilliance and a joy to watch.
Goals mean prizes, and this week it has worked very well for Luis Suarez, who struck four against Norwich.

Bayern Munich forward Arjen Robben has been ruled out for six weeks as a result of the knee injury he picked up in the DFB-Pokal win over Augsburg on Wednesday night.
Robben, who opened the scoring in the third minute, was carried from the field 10 minutes later after being caught on the knee by the studs of Augsburg goalkeeper Marwin Hitz.
