Liverpool live updates
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.
Striker Luis Suarez has pledged to carry on scoring the goals which will fire Liverpool back into the Champions League.
Manager Brendan Rodgers believes the 26-year-old is the happiest he has been at Anfield and that was certainly the case on Wednesday as he left the ground clutching the match ball after another stunning performance.

I think we can achieve what we set out to do.
My aim is just to help make the team better. My job is just to score the goals that mean we keep winning games and get as high in the table as possible.
I am happy to be in the Premier League, the best league there is.
I don't know about challenging for the title, but we want to be as high up in the table as possible and do as well as we can. I think we can achieve our target.
Wow. I think Suarez might have beaten Hazard's effort with three of his goals. Sensational.
Luis Suarez. All you can say is Wow!
