Luis Suarez won the Football Supporters' Federation Player of the Year award last night at the Emirates Stadium, the home of Arsenal.

The annual ceremony was held at Arsenal's home, where Suarez and Liverpool lost 2-0 in the Premier League back in October.

The Uruguayan striker could have been playing for the Gunners that day if Liverpool chose to accept Arsene Wenger's summer bid for his services.

Instead, Suarez remained at Anfield and despite missing the first eight games of the season through suspension, he's fired 17 goals in 11 matches since then.

The Premier League's most feared forward was nominated for the award alongside Juan Mata, Robin van Persie, Leighton Baines, Christian Benteke and Pablo Zabaleta, with more than 500,000 votes cast.

After receiving the trophy, Suarez admitted he text Liverpool team-mate Steven Gerrard immediately after England were drawn with Uruguay at next summer's World Cup.

"We laughed," he said. "It's unbelievable. It's a very difficult group."
