London: Veteran Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has claimed teammate Luis Suarez, who is Premier League’s leading scorer, is currently top flight’s best striker.
Carragher said he has maintained for the last year that the Uruguayan is the best player in the league, and feels Suarez has answered the critics who claimed he did not score enough goals.
“I’ve said for 12 months now that he’s the best player in the Premier League, because he’s maybe not playing alongside the kind of players that, for example, the Chelsea players can play alongside,” a daily quoted Carragher, as saying.
“He’s one of the best players in world football and we are delighted to have him. He does things in a game that we see him doing in training on a daily basis,” he added.
“There’s always that question, I think being asked unfairly, of whether he scores enough goals, but isn’t he the top scorer in the league at the moment? And that’s in a team that hasn’t won that many league games this season, don’t forget,” he said.
